Outcomes and Impact
Our core purpose is to provide opportunities and choices for individuals, families and communities to create meaningful and sustainable change in their well-being.
Individuals: In our Annual Service User Satisfaction Survey — 84% of individuals reported improvements in mental health and well-being and 67% reported improved physical health.
Families: Drug and alcohol misuse and complex needs don’t only affect the individual user, the harm can extend to the whole family. By adopting a family focused approach across our services we believe we achieve a greater impact – 71% of our service users in our annual Satisfaction Survey reported improved relationships with families and friends.
Communities: The impact of drug and alcohol misuse and complex needs on the local community can be high in terms of the cost to local services and social cohesion. We believe that by being a visible and active presence in the local community we can reduce stigma and show the positive side of recovery. 77% of our service users in our Annual Service User Satisfaction Survey felt accepted as part of the community and able to give back to their community.
We build on the assets in our recovery communities and engage with the local community in working together to improve things for everyone.
