Recovery Support

We recognise that Recovery does not happen in isolation – it is generally learned from other people who have gone down the same road and who are in a good position to ‘mentor’ or model our methods and principles of recovery. Our support services and activities build on and maintain clients’ progress and wellbeing.

Our Approach to Treatment

Open Road aims to provide high quality, effective and evidence-based treatment in the community for those struggling with addictions to drugs and / or alcohol.
