Bethany Christian Centre aims, through a supported residential community, to assist individuals in their recovery from an addictive lifestyle.
The Centre is a supportive working community for men aged 17–70 that aims to help those in need to resettle back into a stable environment, free from alcohol and drugs. Addiction issues, budgeting, legal matters, health issues, family relationships, housing applications, benefit claims and contact with counselling services and other agencies are among a myriad of services the Centre provides. Residents learn to relate and work together as they participate in community meetings, cooking, cleaning, group activities and house holidays, and are encouraged to get involved with further education and voluntary work placements within Bethany or further afield.
The centre provides access to a selection of recovery programmes including structured group-work, one-to-one support, recreation, work activities and training opportunities.
There is a focus on a Christian recovery programme, however individuals who do not want a faith aspect are also accommodated and provided with a tailored recovery programme.
