Aquarius Recovery Service supports adults through their recovery journey to engage in purposeful activities, 1:1 sessions and group work. The aim is to explore triggers, relapse prevention and peer support networks to encourage them to remain abstinent in their substance use. We provide support in preparing for residential rehab, assessments, detox and we also support those who are already in treatment.

Depending on your needs and goals the service offers a range of recovery activities throughout the week to help people achieve and maintain their recovery goals. The service provides additional support which compliments traditional drug and alcohol treatment and focuses on helping people to make positive changes to their life. This can include one-to-one support, group support or opportunities to try out new activities and make friends with like-minded people.

The service also provides people with the opportunity to meet and learn from peer mentors who are also moving through the recovery process.
