  • Need


    Years of addiction and social disadvantage can result in low self-esteem, and a lack of the skills and confidence needed to successfully manage their lives.
    This projects aims to enable those that engage with it, to quicken their journey out of addiction and more securely establish and sustain their place in mainstream society.


    By each person being involved from the beginning it gives a sense of ownership and helps people to rid themselves of the fear that is too often the main difficulty.
