We can help you to identify your needs regarding your substance misuse and support you to develop your own recovery plan. We do this through an assessment that records what action needs to be taken in order for you to reach your goals.
We currently provide three main types of service to help people recover from substance misuse.
We can provide individual counselling that can help you change your behaviour, thoughts and feelings about yourself in relation to your substance misuse. We use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for our counselling.
We can support you to gain personal, social and employability skills through a combination of group work and individual support. We can also help you to gain volunteering, educational and training opportunities and obtain a qualification through Forth Valley College.
Substance Misuse Recovery Development
We employ two dedicated Recovery Development Workers who are professionally qualified and who have lived experience of having a substance misuse problem. Their job, as community development workers for the Forth Valley Recovery Community (FVRC), is to turn the aspiration of recovery into tangible and meaningful achievements for individuals and families affected by substance misuse.
Where we work
We work mainly across the Forth Valley area that is the three local authority areas of:
- Clackmannanshire Council
- Falkirk Council
- Stirling Council
These three geographical areas combined is the catchment area for NHS Forth Valley. We also work in South and North Lanarkshire with our third sector partner, Circle, in providing services for women offenders.
All of our services are arranged on an appointment basis and we can also provide counselling services in various health centres and community facilities across Forth Valley.
We can also arrange early evening appointments on certain evenings for people who are working or are unable to attend during normal working hours. On occasions we can also see people in their own homes.
