New Beginnings open day to celebrate recovery

A Doncaster specialist detoxification unit which helps people beat their drug and alcohol addictions is holding an open day to celebrate recovery on Thursday 23 June.

New Beginnings, which is run by Aspire Drug and Alcohol Services in Balby, offers a comprehensive recovery programme to support people’s reintegration into the community. It provides medically assisted programmes in a purpose built unit, which recently underwent a £35,000 refurbishment, offering the maximum amount of support for people aiming to achieve a drug and alcohol free lifestyle.

Aspire Service Manager Stuart Green said: “We offer a fully functional detoxification inpatient unit, staffed 24/7 by specialist nursing staff along with an integrated structured day programme, which means people are treated in the right environment where recovery can prosper.

“There is increasing demand nationally for facilities like ours, so as well as providing our specialist detoxification service and after care to people who live in the borough, we’re able to offer a limited number of inpatient detox beds to people outside of Doncaster.

“This event is all about raising awareness of our outstanding facilities and celebrating the fantastic services we offer to support people in their recovery.”

Visitors to the drop-in event can attend taster sessions of the groups available at the unit, acupuncture trials, arts and crafts, information stalls and tours of the newly refurbished unit. There will also be live music and a hog roast lunch and buffet.

The event will be held at New Beginnings, Marshall Avenue, Balby, DN4 0QP and anyone who requires more information can ring 01302 571240, or visit
