KIKIT Drugs & Alcohol

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

Our research has highlighted that there is a strong culture of denial in minority ethnic communities about drug and alcohol problems and a reluctance to admit to problems because of the shame it might cause.

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.

Cultural and faith-based recovery solutions increase the change for those with issues of addiction and their families to live a fulfilling life free from drugs and crime. We use our expertise in cultural dialogue to overcome the challenges of addiction, offering specialist recovery programs that reflect cultural sensitivities.

Our services include

 

  • Drug and alcohol recovery programmes
  • Outreach support
  • Peer mentors
  • Training and volunteering
  • Self-help recovery support groups
  • Family and carer support
  • Open access drop-in support
