A NEW drug and alcohol support service has officially been launched in Rotherham.
National health and social care charity Change Grow Live (CGL) took up the reins of the adult substance misuse services offered at Carnson House in April.
It was given a civic seal of approval last Monday by Cllr David Roche, Rotherham Borough Council’s cabinet member for public health.
Services were previously offered from the Moorgate Road base by Lifeline Rotherham.
Director Lucy Harrison added: “We are ambitious to support people to move away from problematic behaviours and into sustained recovery and this is very much reflected in our delivery model.
“There is a real commitment and passion to work in Rotherham to continue to embed positive change.”
Terri Roche, director of public health at the borough council, said: “It’s really important that anyone experiencing drug and alcohol substance misuse in the borough is able to access the support they need as quickly and easily as possible.
“We are delighted to be working with CGL to deliver this service and we hope together, we can encourage more people to reach out and seek help rather than suffering in silence.”
