IRC is a constituted group with an active committee and membership who have been pivotal to the development of the Recovery Cafe Model in Inverclyde. IRC caters for the social needs of people in recovery / seeking recovery who are trying to avoid the pressures to use drink and / or drugs found in many adult social situations in Scotland.
Over the past few years, Inverclyde Recovery Projects at Your Voice have included the development and support of many different individuals on their path to Recovery.
Building on skills learned from prevention and education programmes provided by rehabilitation / treatment services, members of Inverclyde Recovery Cafe were keen to take a holistic approach and create a project to assist people on their recovery journey, as they move away from services into the community.
Recovery is a lifelong journey that requires removing substances from the system and building a solid foundation of a healthy lifestyle, and healthy behaviors.
Inverclyde recovery assets have created a social hub for people in recovery, led by people in recovery. IRC meets twice a week – Wednesdays & Fridays 5.00-8.00pm @ Crown Care, and celebrates all recovery and approaches to recovery.
It aims to develop recovery communities across Inverclyde and offer a wider range of opportunities for people in recovery - to support each other and develop both personally & socially, as they adjust to life without alcohol and/or drugs.
