New programme for substance abuse recovery

Turas Counselling Services, a not-for-profit organisation providing addiction supports to people in the North East, is running a 15-week structured day programme from February 5. The programme involves group support and workshops towards building participants self-belief and delves into the underlying causes of their addiction.
It is delivered in an understanding, non-judgmental and supportive environment and helps people to personally develop in their recovery from addiction.
To join the programme people must be at least one month sober from their substance of choice or stabilised on prescribed medication, over 18 years, willing to attend one day per week for five weeks and two days per week for ten weeks and also attend weekly one-to-one counselling sessions.
A range of workshops are offered on topics including relationships, relapse prevention, anger management etc. underpinned by a focus on building a better future.
“The programme is a unique and excellent opportunity for people in the North East to engage self-exploration in regard to their addiction. Past participants have found it hugely beneficial and many have gone on to find employment after completing it,” said Alan Duff, Turas Lead Facilitator on the Structured Day Programme.
This service is provided free of charge to recovering substance misusers within the North Eastern Area, who fulfil the above criteria.
