We are running this programme for people with an addictive lifestyle who have reached the point in their journey where they are ready to commit to rebuilding their lives.
- Build a brand new facility in the basement of the Victory Centre in Portswood
- This will house and equip people suffering with addictions with the Addiction Rehab in the Community (Recovery Programme)
- This will work along side the Recovered4Life programme which includes the Elijah Project, and the Addiction Rehab Recovery Programme
Identifying the Need
We have run a soup run into the City of Southampton for 27 years and run a drop-in day centre for 13 years. Through getting to know the homeless, lonely and marginalised people who used our services we have identified that a high proportion of them have addiction issues and/or mental health problems, some will have become homeless through their addiction, relationship break down or loss of a job. Provision of Mental Health services within the city has been severely reduced in recent years so the need for support is even greater.
