BAC-IN is a culturally responsive, not culturally exclusive service, we collaborate sharing good practice for the betterment of all communities.
BAC-IN offers a Transformative Recovery Programme for men and women who are seeking recovery from drug and alcohol misuse and related multiple disadvantage. 1:1 support can help to address personal issues related to mental health, anxiety, depression, including relationship conflicts, trauma and multiple forms of abuse. It can also allow space for reflection, mindfulness and personal development.
BAC-IN recognises that addiction affects the whole family in many ways and life can be challenging for those who live with someone who is misusing alcohol or drugs. We, also understand the difficulties families can face when accessing support, these can include fear, guilt and shame or not being able to find the right service that is culturally responsive to their needs, beliefs and values.
BAC-IN family support addresses these difficulties in a culturally sensitive, safe and supportive environment. Brief aspects of family support include, exploring co-dependency, managing stress, resolving relationship conflict and improving healthy communication. These can be achieved through:
• 1:1 support
• Group support
• Phone support
• Home visits
• Referral to other appropriate services
