What is Steps to Recovery?

Steps to Recovery is a new Big Lottery funded project being delivered by Dumbarton Area Council on Alcohol (DACA) for people aged 18+, who are resident in West Dunbartonshire and have been affected by alcohol misuse. The Steps to Recovery project provides a range of fun, informal group activities and training designed to help individuals on their recovery journey.

What activities are on offer?

The activities are decided by those who attend and take place at our centres in both Clydebank and Dumbarton, as well as the surrounding community. The aim of the activities for all participants is to:

Improve skills and increase confidence level, reduce isolation and loneliness, improve physical and emotional well-being & sustain long term recovery from problematic drinking.

Examples of past and existing activities:

- Walking
- Music
- Fishing
- Gardening
- Photography
- Cycling
- Creative Writing

How can I get involved?

If you are already receiving support at DACA, speak with your counsellor or a member of staff and they will provide you with information.
If you haven’t been to DACA before, why not pop in to one of our drop-in sessions on a Monday morning or Wednesday evening to speak to a member of the team?

Can I volunteer for Steps to Recovery?

There are lots of opportunities to volunteer and we are keen to recruit people with direct experience of living with an alcohol problem and recovery.

The main criteria we are looking for is a caring, non-judgemental attitude, and a willingness to help. If this sounds like you, please give us a call.
