Community recovery model

We assess progress against our community recovery model and re-enforce assets to ensure a diverse and robust support network. This forms part of our resettlement check-list.

The recovery community provides support and encouragement based on voluntary friendships and the bond of shared experiences and goals. This endures beyond engagement in formal services and forms an important part of someone’s sustainable recovery.

The shared interest community provides an important bridge between someone’s life based on drug and alcohol use and the wider community. The friendships and contacts made here provide access to support which may not be available through the recovery community.

Feeling a part of the community in which they live is an important part of someone’s ability to sustain recovery and to thrive.

The security of someone’s place within these communities ensures a broad based support network is in place which promotes sustained life-long recovery.
