Aspire is a partnership organisation set up by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) and registered charity The Alcohol & Drug Service (ADS).
Between us we’ve been delivering safe, effective interventions for alcohol addiction and drug addiction in Yorkshire, Humberside and Lincolnshire for over 40 years. We’ve helped thousands of local people on the road to recovery, as we help deliver the national strategy locally.
At Aspire, we pride ourselves on being innovative and forward thinking, and work closely with the recovery communities we serve to provide flexible, responsive services, which offer the best possible recovery outcomes for all our service users.
Everyone’s recovery journey is individual to them and is related to their community, society and their aspirations.
Sustaining a successful, fulfilling, independent life away from specialist services depends on support networks embedded in the wider community. Therefore, community reintegration is key to sustainable recovery.
Our approach takes the view that the sense of community is based on shared experience, shared interest and shared geography.
Community reintegration forms one element of someone’s recovery plan, with an identified case manager and the person concerned working together.
The process does not stand in isolation but is an integrated part of the overall recovery journey.
Community reintegration is informed by, and coordinated with other aspects of the journey within a recovery plan.
Ensuring someone’s place in these communities is secure will give them a good level of broad based support.
A community of shared experience
Our service users all have the shared experience of substance misuse. This community is better known as a 'recovery community'.
A community of shared interest
Some service users will enter treatment with interests intact, active or dormant, while others will need support to discover new ones.
