We have participants who come along to our groups so regularly that they form a community with us and the other participants. Here's Jim's story about how having this stability and connection point has been a positive thing in his life and helped him to form good friendships:

"Street Connect has had an impact on my life by offering me additional support in my recovery from alcoholism and instilling new hope and belief in my ability to find and maintain employment.

Since I've been involved with Street Connect, they have enabled me to make new friendships and attend groups and drop-ins (before the lockdown) which I hope to maintain once the restrictions are lifted.

I would recommend Street Connect to others and tell them it's a safe and relaxed way to receive support in overcoming your addiction."
