PUSH Recovery Community –PUSH is an independent, inclusive, peer-led service user group – anyone can join. We’re not abstinence focused as we know that sometimes people aren’t quite ready to get there yet until they’re being supported. We also challenge the stigma and discrimination others in the community may feel towards drug or alcohol users.
