Victory Highway Recovery Centre

Living-Recovery programme

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.

Objective:

  • Equip people to live a new life
  • Enable people with addictions to be set free from addictive lifestyles , gain employment and be restored to their families.

The programme is

  • Structured
  • Happens daily, five days per week
  • Involves recovery and therapeutic intervention
  • Works along side the Elijah Project that runs every Wednesday evening

Benefits of a day recovery programme:

  • Daily life issues can be confronted and worked through as they arise in a safe environment
  • Cost-effective
  • It’s possible to work with the service-user’s family and enable them to build a strong, effective local support network which is essential for sustained recovery

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.
