Aspire celebrates opening of its Stainforth Hub
Doncaster’s Drug and Alcohol Service has launched its latest hub in Stainforth in a bid to reach out to local communities.
The Stainforth Hub at Stainforth Clinic is the third community hub launched by Aspire Drug and Alcohol Services and it joins the Jade Centre in Bentley and the Hall Gate Centre in Mexborough as brand new bases to support people suffering with drug and alcohol problems – and their families – to beat their addictions, and go on to successfully lead fulfilling, independent lives within their local communities.
Aspire Service Manager Stuart Green said: “Aspire is committed to helping adults who have found that drug or alcohol use is causing harm to themselves, their family or the local community.
“Our Single Point of Access (SPOA) is the first point of contact for anyone wishing to access Aspire services for advice and support.
“Our main SPOA base is at Rosslyn House on Thorne Road, which means it is harder to reach for people who live outside the town centre.
“These local hubs mean we’re bringing our service into the local community close to where people live, making it as easy as possible for them to get the help and support they need.”
He added: “We’re developing a timetable of activities at all our hubs including group and one-to-one work, arts and crafts, as well as mutual aid groups using our acclaimed volunteer and peer mentor programme.
“We’re also able to offer links to local gyms, health and fitness, education and employment opportunities via our employment and education workers.”
