Now in its 31st year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from drug and alcohol misuse.

Each September, Recovery Month, an international event that is increasingly being marked in the UK, works to support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members who make recovery in all its forms possible.

The theme for 2020 National Recovery Month is Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections. As a result, Derbyshire’s drug and alcohol recovery services are reaching out to local health providers to make connections and ensure that local people in your care know where to turn when they need support.

Derby Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service (for Derby city) and Derbyshire Recovery Partnership support local people with substance misuse issues. 

Support offered includes:

  • Help with drug misuse 
  • Help with alcohol misuse 
  • Recovery support
  • Group work
  • 1:1 support 
  • Health screening
  • Support for affected family members 
  • Family support. 

Recovery is a large part of the services offered and the services aim to celebrate the excellent work clients achieve.
