Double Impact first started supporting people in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire with drug and alcohol issues in 1998.  Over the past 18 years we have collaborated with our service users to develop an approach which takes people on a journey away from hopelessness and dependence on drugs or alcohol, into freedom from addiction and a meaningful, useful life.

Our services include:

  • Individually-tailored support to promote sustained recovery
  • Opportunities for education, training, volunteering and employment;
  • Practical help and advice around housing and finances;
  • Safe places which promote mutual respect, peer support and a sense of community amongst our service users

"Without the services that DI offer i wouldn't be where i am today and the person i am. They help you with whatever that may be from drugs and alcohol to debt. So please don't struggle, come and speak to someone and come and meet some new positive people that really want to help you on your journey to recovery !!!!"     (L.B. - service user)

The Academy

Many of our services are based around an Academy model, which places a strong emphasis on learning and volunteering as a key means of moving through and beyond treatment services into the community.

Our services currently operate in Nottingham city, Nottinghamshire, Lincoln and Lincolnshire.  For help and support please click here.
