KIKIT Drugs & Alcohol

KIKIT provides culturally sensitive and tailored help, advice and support for anyone suffering from the effects of drugs and alcohol addiction, dependency or abuse.

In partnership with CHANGE GROW LIVE (CGL) we co-deliver a range of recovery services supporting the most vulnerable in society, particularly those who feel marginalised because of their culture or community, and feel they have nowhere to turn because of these added pressures.

we believe catering to the needs of diverse communities requires innovative thinking and adapting services to the needs of individuals and their families

We use an integrated and culturally competent approach, by offering specialists recovery programs, open access drop in, community workshops and self-help support groups.

Recovery from addiction is ongoing, requiring long-term support and treatment which is why KIKIT offers a range of recovery support groups which are extremely helpful for those suffering from substance use disorders, and for their families and friends. We do everything in our power to provide the necessary support structure so as to minimise the chance of someone relapsing.

KIKIT’s BME Support Group is a self-help group which engages individuals from marginalised and hard-to-reach communities, and helps them to overcome the barriers they face when trying to access specialist services. This group encourages people to come forward and seek help in a confidential and non-judgmental environment, with the importance of mutual aid at its heart.

The Muslim Recovery Network is a 6 week 12 step Islamic addiction recovery programme for individuals that experience problems associated with addiction. The steps and traditions are based upon Islamic principles and throughout the programme we follow the Islamic prophetic example as a path to productive, healthier and addiction-free lives.
