Recovery Support Services

Recovery Support Services

RAPt Recovery Support Services encompasses the holistic range of provision we offer to clients who complete one of our treatment programmes, either in prison or in the community, and their families and friends. 

Following a comprehensive review of our 'through the gate' services, we identified a need for an approach which provided a more tailored set of services. 

Formerly called 'Aftercare', the Recovery Support Service offers an array of services to clients. RAPt’s Aftercare service was set up in 2007, with the aim of providing continuity of care to every man and woman who graduated from one of RAPt’s drug and alcohol treatment programmes within criminal justice settings.

The Recovery Support Service includes support and guidance specifically tailored to those who have been in prison as a result of their addiction (Transitional Support), guidance tailored to clients who have engaged in one of our community programmes (Recovery Support),  assistance with education, training and employment (ETE), as well as the opportunity to volunteer and learn skills with our volunteering team.  

It also encompasses our Apprenticeship scheme, which was designed to offer people in recovery the opportunity to make a career for themselves, as well as a Family Liaison Service, which offers information, support and guidance to the families of our clients.
