In 2012, we embarked on a journey to provide people who were dependent on alcohol and other substances, with a safe space in which they could overcome their addictions, understand and better manage their emotions and rebuild their lives.
After trialling ideas on residential trips to Wales, In July 2013, we welcomed our first group of 14 people to our 12 week programme. Carol and Donna, alongside a team of nine staff and volunteers worked around the clock to deliver a safe, tapered alcohol withdrawal detox, and Transforming Choice was born.
In 10 years, we’ve worked with over 350 people – the majority of who would have been described as having ‘multiple and complex needs’ or ‘hard to reach’. Many were only one more drink away from losing their lives.
