On the recovery journey together…

Calderdale Recovery Steps, a partnership of Humankind and The Basement, provides drug and alcohol treatment and recovery support across Calderdale. The project focuses on recovery, harm reduction and user involvement.

Branching Out, delivered by Humankind, provides drug alcohol and tobacco services for young people aged up to 21 who reside or are educated within Calderdale. Branching Out offers 1:1 support, Brief Interventions, Information, Advice and guidance, Family Support, as well as delivering bespoke training sessions, and education (PSHCE) within the School environment.

One step at a time

It’s a one step at a time journey to recovery offering bespoke treatments for individuals. Service users may use local ‘Recovery Hubs’ in Halifax or rural Todmorden, or go to their own GP surgeries for treatment, support and reviews. The programme is innovatively designed to offer seamless, accessible and relevant services which will enable service users to work towards recovery

Calderdale Recovery Steps runs a Single Point of Access (SPOA) where an initial assessment can be undertaken and appointments made and/or prescription issues managed. Information, advice and support is available for individual and their families.

Young people and their families are also able to contact the Single Point of Access “SPOA” (using option 2) for information and advice regarding drug, alcohol, or tobacco use. Branching Out offers a confidential service and young people are seen at multiple venues across Calderdale that are agreed individually. A full individual package of care is offered to all young people accessing the service.

Support to abstain

Service users can get expert advice on issues including relapse prevention, harm reduction advice, housing issues, benefits advice and information, family support and information on local activities that may be of interest.
