When Christmas brings excessive alcohol consumption all round it can be a challenging and potentially dangerous time for those in recovery.
Festive social pressures see some relapsing and returning to alcohol or illegal or prescription drugs.
Change Grow Live is a charity that offers free help and support to anyone wanting to change their relationships with drugs and alcohol.
You can refer yourself or go to your GP to be referred if you have any concerns.
“You don’t have to join a group or talk about your recovery, just pop in and say hello. As well as the delicious brownies you will find a warm space, friendly staff and phone charging facilities.” says Rose Ashley-Rogers of Change Grow Live.
The Christmas warm welcome dates will also be supported by the recently opened Starbucks Café on King Street who are kindly donating stock of their re-usable cups.
