A NEW service will launch tomorrow that will help people tackle drug and alcohol addiction.

Barnsley Council has commissioned northern charity DISC to provide substance misuse service aimed at prevention and recovery from drug and alcohol misuse, with a greater focus on reducing the harm caused to families and the local community.

The service, named ‘Barnsley Recovery Steps’, will provide treatment of drug and alcohol addiction with a tailored programme to help people to overcome their addictions.

The council says group work, one to one intervention, mutual aid and innovative peer led support will form the basis of the service.

The programme will support those who have previously failed recovery.
