Substance misuse provision for Barnsley

Our cabinet members will be asked to approve the continuation of the existing service provision delivered by Humankind Charity for substance misuse.

Barnsley Recovery Steps is a service delivered by Humankind Charity and delivers drug and alcohol treatment and support to anyone aged 18 years or over experiencing problems with substance misuse.

The service provides a wide range of support tailored to different needs, including harm reduction and early prevention support as well as structured treatment programmes and recovery and aftercare support.

Cabinet will look to approve the continuation of the service following the National Drugs Strategy published in December 2021, which places a strong emphasis on partnership working at a local level.

As we move towards a Healthy Barnsley, we want to make sure that people have the right support, in the right place, and at the right time.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing problems with drugs or alcohol, please contact Barnsley Recovery Steps on 01226 779066.

Cllr Jenny Platts, Cabinet spokesperson for Adults and Communities, said; We’re committed to making sure everyone in Barnsley can access the support they need to enjoy life in good physical and mental health. We have an established partnership with Humankind to offer help to residents who have problems with substance misuse, providing them with free and confidential support, and we want to keep working with partners and providers to make sure we can offer good quality support services for the people who need it.”
