Anyone can be affected by addiction and everyone deserves the help they need to overcome it. That’s why we are extending our reach across Kirklees. Our recovery hubs in Huddersfield and Dewsbury have been central to helping people get well from drug and alcohol addictions. We have a vibrant and enthusiastic community of people wanting to give back to their fellow colleagues and localities. We shall be reaching out to more people by bringing three recovery groups closer to those who need them.
