The alcohol care management team provide a community care service for individuals experiencing any difficulties linked to alcohol use. This would include assessment for residential rehabilitation and arranging rehab that most meets an individual's particular needs.

The team can also support people to access other "dry" environments and supported accommodation.

Where more appropriate the team would also assess and assist people to access "wet" accommodation and work with the person in moving towards safer planned drinking levels.

We will also work alongside our health partners in providing advice on safe drinking or planned reduction in drinking.

• A horticultural and gardening business based at Stockwood Discovery Centre
