Dorset launches new Recovery Fund

REACH Drug & Alcohol Services, EDP’s Dorset based service has just launched a brand new fund to help any service user with their recovery.

The Recovery Fund is a dedicated pot of money that will be available to any service user to help them stay focused on their recovery.

For people in active addiction and early recovery it is vital to understand that recovery it is far more than giving up a substance. It’s about learning to live, rather than to just simply exist. Reducing or stopping substances leaves a huge void in someone’s life and so it is vital to find somewhere they feel at home and safe, build new positive relationships, find hobbies and things they are passionate about. The overall feeling of having a sense of purpose and place within this new world.  

  • You can donate as little as £5 or £10 which will benefit our clients with bus fares to get to see their recovery worker, or to go to the job centre, or a job interview.
