Sheffield Service

Alcohol Recovery Community (ARC)

How we can help

We work with people in recovery from drugs and alcohol use.  We help you to build your recovery capital – the personal, social and community resources that will help you move on from addiction.

We work with you in a group setting to:

  • build confidence and resilience
  • add some structure to your life
  • improve you well-being
  • develop skills and qualifications
  • engage with opportunities in your local community
  • access education, training and employment

The ARC uses peer support and group work to help you at whatever stage of recovery you are in through three phases of engagement:

Phase 1: Recovery Exposure – for those new to the idea of recovery, helping you to understand your own relationship with alcohol and where you may be feeling a bit stuck.

Phase 2: Recovery Buy-In – as long or short as you need, we will support you to become healthier, more active, develop skills and start to feel a real impact.

Phase 3: Better than Well – the ambition for you to become happy, moving on from your addiction, seeing yourself as an agent of change and defining yourself by your assets not your deficits
