I Need Help


Our aim is to support individuals to change their drinking or to stop using substances; to reach their own treatment goals and to help build positive lifestyles. We offer support to reduce the harm associated with drug and alcohol use and promote recovery and freedom from dependency.

Derbyshire Recovery Partnership can offer you the following:

  • One-one key working
  • A range of recovery support and group activities
  • A dedicated substance misuse counselling service
  • Re-employability programmes

To access any of these services, you will need to refer yourself in. This can be done by dropping in to one of our bases, contacting us by phone or by filling in the form on our website. Once you are referred in t the service, you will be allocated a key worker. It is this worker that will stay with you throughout your time in the service and will work with you on what you’d like to achieve.


Substance Misuse Counselling

Counselling is offered to help support you to make changes and achieve freedom from dependency. We will work with you to achieve your goals and gain better understanding of yourself, learn improved coping strategies and improve your self esteem. Often clients tell us that the thoughts of a path ahead without substances is too difficult for them , feeling that without using drugs or alcohol it would be impossible to cope with difficult feelings. Counselling can help you identify and remove blocks which may be preventing you moving forward in your recovery and can provide you with improved ways to face and deal with difficult feelings. We can offer 12 sessions of one-to-one counselling and will provide sessions with you and a family member or partner where requested.

What you talk about with your counsellor is confidential, however if you have been referred by your key worker and you stop attending, we will need to let your key worker know. If we feel at any point through the counselling you or someone else is at immediate risk from your actions, we will discuss our concerns with your key worker.

To access DRP substance misuse counselling please speak to your allocated key worker.
