Mutual Aid

What is Mutual Aid?
Mutual aid is when people who share similar experiences are able to support each other in continuing recovery and managing issues.

Mutual aid groups are a source of structure and continuing support for people seeking recovery from alcohol or drug dependence, and for those directly or indirectly affected by dependence, such as partners, close friends, children and other family members. (Gov.uk)


We offer two kinds of Mutual Aid groups: 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Peer Recovery (ACT PR)

ACT PR is an approach to recovery that focuses on building a life worth living by learning to focus on behaviours; what you can change and what is important to you.

We are offering open access to mutual aid meetings for people in recovery from addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.

The groups are run by peers who are in recovery themselves and available across Rochdale and Oldham.

Every Monday: 10:30am – 12:30pm at Rochdale St Chad’s Court.

Please speak to a member of staff for more information.


Moderation Management (MM)

Are you concerned that your drinking is becoming a problem?

MM groups offer a supportive mutual aid environment that encourages people to make changes to their drinking BEFORE the problem becomes too severe.

Every Monday 18:00pm – 19:30pm at Rochdale Fire Station, Community Room, 27 Halifax Road, Rochdale OL12 9BD.

Press the buzzer for access to the building.

Please note sessions will not take place on 04/02/2019 and 04/03/2019.

Please speak to a member of staff for more information.

We are currently providing limited face to face support as a result of COVID-19; however treatment is still available. Find out the latest update on how the service is operating and please phone your local hub if you need assistance.
