Reach is a Drug and Alcohol Community Support Service. We cover the whole of Dorset, minus Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. We have a large team that includes Community Development, Recovery Workers, Nurses, Prescribers, Volunteer Roles and much more. We offer support for those have issues with their drug and/or alcohol use from point of referral to achieving their own goals. We have several pathways within our service that include structured group work, psychosocial interventions, prescribing, needle exchange, detox and outdoor peer activities.
An exciting opportunity for volunteers is to co-facilitate group sessions with service users. We offer a wide range of groups for alcohol dependent clients as well as opiate-dependent clients. We offer groups such as: Lose the Booze, Recovery in Balance, Changing Thinking Patters, Parent Support group, Relative Support group, and peer-led SMART Recovery groups. Once you are confident and competent in co-facilitating a group alongside our Recovery Navigators you potentially can progress to run and facilitate your own group.
