We give support to people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction through therapy, counselling, peer mentoring, employment training and social activities.

The Well is a vibrant community of people. Together, we support each other and we believe wholeheartedly that recovery is possible for anyone. By valuing and investing in the people who use our services, we're able to show a different side to addiction. A side which sees members start their lives afresh with new friends, stronger family links and better prospects.

We have the expertise to support people with a variety of problems such as a history of offending, mental health issues, homelessness, learning difficulties and childhood abuse. Our services are free and people can use them for as long as they want. That's what makes us different to other support providers.

We're at the heart of the recovery community in north Lancashire and Cumbia, and we keep growing.

Ann's story

Ann Johnson had been a prolific drug and alcohol user for 27 years. She had been through detox nine times but had always relapsed. But with support from The Well, Ann has got her life back on track and has been drug and alcohol-free for more than a year.

Mark's story

Mark Baker started drinking at the age of 13 after his mother died. He continued to drink heavily until, at the age of 48, his addiction spiralled out of control. Through the love and support of his family and the expertise of staff at The Well, Mark is now in recovery.
