From a vision has come a reality. Our Centre opened its doors on November 1st 2021.

Now, anyone in the Lichfield District & Tamworth can get support, locally, 6 days a week from people with lived experience of addiction.

Better Way Recovery Mission Statement

Our Vision:

To create a recovery community in Lichfield District and Tamworth, where service users feel hope and togetherness. Where services users feel that change is actually possible for them too.

Our Mission:

To create a safe, respectful environment in the Lichfield District and Tamworth, for people with substance misuse problems. Run and supported by service users with many years’ experience in active addiction, whom have all found a Better Way to live life in recovery.

To help, encourage and support service users, out of the problem and into a positive solution. We will lead with a recovery focused, person centred approach. We will help develop new coping skills and life tools, shared, and led by people who have been in similar situations and found a way out. For us, this type of experience is unparalleled.

We will do this by working alongside all key agencies in the area, developing a network of contacts to assist with individual’s needs. We will provide signposting and peer support for education, volunteering opportunities, work, family support and introductions to local recovery support groups.

While we have all heard of the negative ripple effect of addiction. We believe strongly in the positive ripple effect of recovery. We know the impact of recovery on an individual’s life, family life and society as a whole is limitless. We believe that this will not only save lives but change lives and that is why we are so passionate about our purpose here at Better Way Recovery.
