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.
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.
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
