“I really think that the support that is offered is amazing and I feel like an ambassador as I am always talking to friends and people about how great the support is and that they should just talk to someone if they are feeling like things are getting out of control. I feel better than I ever have in my recovery.”

Who is this service for? 

Our recovery programme is for LGBTQ+ people in Greater Manchester and Liverpool affected by drugs, alcohol and chemsex.

What we can do, together:

Our Recovery Programme is here to ensure that you find your own way to recovery and the relationship that you want with alcohol and drugs.  

We are partnered with Change Grow Live in Manchester and various partners in Liverpool and can support you to access mainstream structured and medical support. We believe that there is not just one way to recover and we explore tools from whichever approach you find suits you best.

“It’s amazing how much my perspective is changing after just a few sessions. I feel more hopeful, motivated, and most importantly much less alone. Really grateful for this service and community. Everyone has been really lovely.”
