News item posted: 19 June 2017

Turning Point are pleased to announce that from April 1st we will be delivering integrated countywide support services for those affected by drug and alcohol misuse across Suffolk.

The Suffolk Recovery Network will offer support to adults and young people affected by drug and alcohol misuse, working closely with local organisations such as Iceni, Suffolk Family Carers and AIR Sports Network, to make sure that the right interventions are available at the right time, to anyone who needs them. There will be hubs in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft as well as other community bases offering support with housing, employment, education and training.

Darren Woodward, Director of Transformation for Substance Misuse services at Turning Point said:

“We’re delighted to be delivering new, integrated services across Suffolk for people effected by substance misuse. We’re particularly looking forward to working with the strong network of local organisations already working in the county to further support people to achieve recovery, combat the effects of substance misuse and achieve what they want to in their lives.”
