The ARC is a recovery community in Sheffield that provides hope, choice and opportunities for adults in or aiming for recovery (making changes to their alcohol and other drug use). We run a timetable of groups 6 days a week with the help of volunteers who have lived experience and are in recovery of dependency. The ARC understands recovery as more of a life change that encompasses self-worth, confidence, meaningful, healthy relationships with yourself and others and wellbeing.

How we work
The ARC project works in 3 phases,
PHASE 1: Relapse Prevention
It all starts with an introduction. At this stage you’ll complete a strength-based assessment with one of our Recovery Workers. Working together you’ll create a bespoke relapse prevention plan.
At this phase you will receive one-to-one support and have access to the Structured Recovery Programme (SRP), Intro to SMART, SMART meetings.
PHASE 2: Recovery Community
At this phase you will have already started to consolidate some of the changes you have started making and have a clear idea of your recovery goals. You will now have full access to the ARC’s weekly timetable of therapeutic activities and core-skills programme. We’ll help you stay on track with regular recovery check-ins and reviews with members of the team.
PHASE 3: Progression Pathways
By this phase you will be feeling confident in your recovery. You will have a good understanding of relapse prevention and start to become a more active member of the recovery community. At this stage you may be looking for new opportunities in the wider community, such as education and training, volunteer or paid roles.
