Congratulations! By reaching this page, you’ve already taken the important first step away from addiction.

At Double Impact, we know it can be daunting to take the first steps towards recovery. That’s why we’re here to help you (or the person you care about) every step of the way.  We support individuals in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire with problematic drug and/or alcohol use to rebuild their lives within the community through our recovery support services.


Your recovery offers a fantastic opportunity to build a new life in the community. We believe in your potential and can help you reconstruct the parts of your life you may feel you are struggling with, such as your confidence, your career and your accommodation. Throughout your recovering we will offer you safe places to start piecing together the things most important to you.

Our services are free and confidential.   They are focused around peer support, groupwork, personal development, learning and volunteering, a lot of which is now available online.  We do not provide clinical services or medication, so we may recommend that you contact your local treatment service if you are likely to require this kind of support.

If you know which service you require then telephone contact details are below, or if you prefer fill out our brief self-referral form .

It keeps me busy; there’s something to do every day. You can come and have a chat with the staff – it’s a nice atmosphere. Although I am going through a lot I’m still laughing and smiling. I don’t want to go down that destructive road again.
