Build on Belief
About this service
Build on Belief offers a range of socially based services for people who have, or have had alcohol and drug addiction issues; services run in the main by volunteers who have had problems themselves in the past.
Services are designed to complement the existing treatment system, offering support, social interaction and a range of activities when there is often nowhere else for people to go, for example at the weekends. This can be a lonely and difficult time if you are in recovery and don’t know how to fill your time. The experience of addiction is often isolating and one of the main challenges in moving forward in your life is making new friends and building a good support network. BoB runs a number of social clubs in London where people with drug and alcohol problems (service users) can come and meet others in a similar situation.
Build on Belief have developed a website - http://invisibleelephant.co.uk - offering advice on alcohol and substance misuse. You can find advice and guidance around some of the substances you might be using and decide if they’ve become a problem for you or a friend you might be concerned about. See what you think and then let the elephant point you in the right direction.
