The new substance misuse service is operating from 3 central hubs in Swindon, Salisbury and Trowbridge, as well as groups and sessions taking place in a range of community venues.
Turning Point already has a strong track record on helping people with drug and alcohol issues in Wiltshire. Last year they treated and supported more people and the number finishing treatment successfully also increased.
The service promises to be more personalised, responding to changing drug and alcohol trends and improving recovery rates across both Wiltshire and Swindon.
IMPACT will be introducing a number of new ways of working, making services more accessible including:
Jay Stewart, Director of Public Health and Substance Misuse at Turning Point said:
“We are very much looking forward to expanding our strong track record of services in Wiltshire to the borough of Swindon and developing a new integrated service.
“Our new initiatives incorporating digital technology and joint work with The Nelson’s Trust will make services more accessible and expansive to the community.”
Jerry Wickham, Cabinet Member for Public Health from Wiltshire Council said:
“ Substance Misuse can affect anyone from our communities. That is why we look forward to continuing to work with Turning Point to develop a new service that is more accessible and aims to intervene at a much earlier stage.
“In working with Swindon Borough Council to jointly commission this service, local people across the whole county will experience a fully joined up way of working.”
Angus Macpherson, Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, said:
“It is acknowledged that drug and alcohol misuse in our communities has an impact on police and the criminal justice system, it is therefore so important to have a service that ensures the best chance of recovery to those dealing with their addictions.”
