FROM OUR CEO, NAREK BIDO
Supporting communities affected by
addiction and mental health problems.
At Recovery Scotland, we believe recovery is possible for all and that with the right support, everyone can reach their full potential. If you or a family member are affected by addiction and associated mental health problems, we can provide trauma informed, solution focussed and person-centred support. We offer a range of activities and services including our local peer-led recovery communities, physical and mental health wellbeing initiatives, education and employability programmes and more.
Our staff & Volunteers
We are proud that 90 per cent of our staff team and recovery volunteers come from a lived experience background. That is, they know what it was like to live with addiction.
At Recovery Scotland we have a VISION to make recovery a reality for all people affected by addiction and associated mental health problems, where stigma is no longer an issue and everyone is supported to reach their full potential.
We have a MISSION to build and empower communities of people that connect and help each other recover from addiction and associated mental health problems. We want to support individuals throughout their unique recovery journeys, fostering a stronger, healthier and happier society.
We want to help by offering you a range of activities, services and courses aimed at making your recovery possible. The knowledge and expertise of our staff and volunteers with lived-experience is invaluable in providing peer-led support designed to sustain and enhance your recovery.
BUILD YOUR CONFIDENCE
We can help you to maintain your stability and improve your self-confidence while you progress to become a recovery volunteer, peer supporter and gain employment within the addiction field. We also have courses that pave the way for you to achieve qualification and pursue further and higher education opportunities.
Some of the best recovery stories are from members of our own team.
At Recovery Scotland, we offer support, socialisation and education for the community, by the community. Most of our team members have been through addiction and recovery themselves and have been supported, and helped by our communities. Watch our video below to hear from one of our team members.
