Description

Service Description

Dear Albert is a peer-led, Recovery focused social enterprise specialising in helping people resolve substance use issues. We have links with peer support fellowships such as Smart Recovery, ACT PR and 12 Steps. We work in close collaboration with statutory funded drug and alcohol agencies, private rehabs, local authorities to provide a full range of treatment choices and services. Our mission statement is to make recovery more visible, accessible and attainable for all.

We also provide a helpline to support clients and families address substance use. We work with clients and families (short to long term) to resolve resistance/ambivalence and increase motivation for change. We undertake assessments which enable us to support clients into an appropriate treatment programme and can also refer clients to a full choice of recovery focused treatment options.

Additional Information

Additional Information

We offer a national social media peer support network and publish a magazine called Service User News, which is designed to address topics of recovery and signpost to local free resources.

We have recently developed a cartoon character called ‘Our Albert’ which aims to communicate specifically to young people. Future editions of Service User News will integrate the rest of the cartoon family and will start to deliver family related messages of support and recovery.

We also provide local film viewings of the acclaimed Dear Albert Recovery Documentary by Nick Hamer and drug and substance misuse education events to local authorities and drug and alcohol services throughout the year.
