Build on Belief Barking and Dagenham

Build on Belief specialises in designing, implementing and running weekend services for people who are struggling with, or are in recovery from their substance use; namely drugs and alcohol. 

These services are open access and offer a wide range of activities loosely based around 'the five ways to well-being.' The various Build on Belief projects do not offer therapeutic interventions, but are socially based befriending services designed to complement the existing structured treatment system. We are strong believers in partnership working, and aim to add a new layer to existing services wherever we work. Most importantly, we do not follow any model of addiction or recovery, believing all to be equally valid and a personal choice. 

If you have any questions about the weekend service, wish to know a little more about the activities, would like a 'meet and greet' or are think of volunteering, please feel free to contact either:
