Our service provides support to men who are suffering from alcoholism.  We use the 12 step approach to recovery from alcoholism. (adopted from Alcoholics Anonymous).

Service users are supported through individual meetings with their appointed support worker. There are also daily meetings at 930am within Jericho House.  Further to this there are external meetings to attend also, mostly in Dundee area. Part of recovery is to attend one meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous each day.

We have a minibus which we use once a week to travel to a meeting outside Dundee.

Staff and service users raised funds for minibus purchase during the last 2 years. They did this through carol singing, walking the West Highland Way, two drama productions and, can collecting at Asda and in the city centre.

 

Our service has been involved with local community groups for Drama, painting swing parks, Graffiti cleaning and litter picking.
