HOPE (Hands On Peer Education Ltd.) has been on the ground helping the North Inner City community deal with addiction since 2003. Today, we celebrate the launch of our 2015 annual report and new digital media channels.
We support our clients to find RECOVERY through an abstinence-based lifestyle. We feel this provides the greatest quality of life for the individual, their family, and community. We believe that any addict can attain and maintain freedom from addiction with supports in place. We would like to see the cycle of multigenerational alcoholism, drug abuse, and drug substitution broken in this community. Our community detox consists of assessment, case management, key working, care planning, building interagency links, helping access a medically supervised detox (either in or outpatient) and accessing other therapies if needed. We also work to help people access residential treatment centres and day programmes. When someone is not ready to become addiction free, we refer them to a service where they can find daily maintenance support and work with them around advocacy issues if needed.
As well as help individuals find recovery from addiction, we support clients’ families and the wider community. We run a range of prevention and education programmes in local schools and have run many addiction and health awareness training. In terms of advocacy, we enable our clients to find education, employment, and housing, as best we can.
Our Annual Reports provide further insight into our community endeavours. You can read the 2015 Report here, alternatively, you can read more here on our website.
Through our new digital outlets, we in HOPE wish to further promote RECOVERY, and let people know that freedom from addiction is possible. We would like the community and our colleagues to join us to celebrate the joint launch of our 2015 annual report and new digital outlets; the website, blog and social media platforms.
Our main point of contact is here on our website.
From which, the blog is our main speech platform which feeds through to our various social media channels.
