Bromsgrove Drop-in

Thursdays 12:00 - 13:00 at The Trunk, 13-21 Humphrey Avenue, Charford, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B60 3JB


Assessment and referral

When you first contact us, we will carry out an initial assessment of your needs and develop a recovery plan with you. You will be allocated a recovery worker who will work alongside you to provide ongoing support, coordination of other services that you can use and regular reviews to assess your progress and build your motivation. Our ethos is to treat the whole person so your recovery plan will cover a wide range of issues such as alcohol and substance use, physical and mental wellbeing, housing, education and training, relationships and social support. Many people are enjoying the benefits of being in recovery each and every day. Please contact Pathways to Recovery to speak to someone about how you can make recovery a reality.

Needle exchange

We provide sterile injecting equipment and paraphernalia, sharps boxes and condoms and also dispose of used injecting equipment. We aim to provide impartial and up-to-date advice to people who inject drugs, and everyone using the needle exchange will have access to support from a specialist substance use nurse. This service is private and confidential.

Family project

The Pathways Family Project supports adults and young people affected by someone else’s substance use. Treating the person as an individual in their own right, the service provides one-to-one and group work support to enable planning and coping skills.
Please contact the Family Project freephone helpline on 0800 652 9664.

Young people’s project

The SPACE project provides information, advice and support to young people who use substances, including drugs, alcohol and volatile substances such as solvents, glue or gas. SPACE also provides information, advice and support for professionals, parents and carers.

Please call the SPACE freephone helpline on 0800 169 6064 if you are worried about your own or another young person’s substance use.

These freephone numbers are a county-wide service available to everyone. When the line is busy, or if you call out-of-hours, you will be asked to leave a brief message and telephone contact number and we will call you back.
