Substance Misuse Support Group

The Well is a vibrant community of people. Together, we support each other and we believe wholeheartedly that recovery is possible for anyone. By valuing and investing in the people who use our services, we're able to show a different side to addiction. A side which sees members start their lives afresh with new friends, stronger family links and better prospects.

We have the expertise to support people with a variety of problems such as a history of offending, mental health issues, homelessness, learning difficulties and childhood abuse. Our services are free and people can use them for as long as they want. That's what makes us different to other support providers.

Therapeutic programmes

We offer the 12-step programme for both drug and alcohol addiction. This programme gives you the skills and techniques to overcome addiction, step by step, with the support of peer mentors along the way. This highly effective programme focuses on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Recovery housing

If you need help with addiction as well as a safe place to live then we may be able to offer you short-term accommodation, with 24-hour support. We have a small number of spaces available for people leaving prison or living in the community. You’ll have the opportunity to start afresh by following a structured programme and staying in one of our houses for up to three months.

Warrior Down

‘Warrior Down’ comes from the Native American Indian and is the cry to signify that a warrior has been wounded. In the recovery community, Warrior Down is used when a person has relapsed and needs help.

Employment and social enterprise

A lack of opportunities to work, learn or do training can be a significant barrier to long-term recovery. We believe that everyone has the potential to be successful at work. We have local links with other organisations to provide jobs, training and work experience for our members.

Family services

Improving family relationships as at the heart of our approach. We know that family members have an important role to play in your recovery. We also know that they need support too. So we run a support service especially for families and carers.

Recovery church

The Well is a place where all recovery pathways can thrive. For many of our members, spirituality and religious faith are vital to their ongoing recovery. Recognising this, we’ve established our own church – the Well Connected church, which operates from our Morecambe hub. Monthly services are delivered by the Rev’d Carolyn Woodcock and often include inspirational guest speakers. Services are open, friendly and non-judgemental and are designed to give you the strength, motivation and optimism needed to remain abstinent.

Sports and social activities

Our clubs give you the chance to meet others in recovery and get support through social activities. The social clubs are a crucial part of our recovering community.
