New Alcohol Recovery Centre to open in Tudor Grove

A new alcohol recovery service in Tudor Grove will open for residents of the City and Hackney on 1 April.

The Grove Alcohol Recovery Centre, 17-20 Tudor Grove, E9, will be operated by East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) in partnership with Lifeline, and will provide up to 750 people with free structured support each year.

The service, which will operate from 11.30am-5.30pm on Mondays, 10am-8pm Tuesdays & Wednesdays, 10am-5.30pm Thursdays & Fridays and 10am-2pm Saturdays, will accept both drop-in clients and referrals from health services and partners.

Each individual attending the recovery centre will be assessed, and given a bespoke care plan according to their individual needs and preferences, and service users will be offered support on either a one-to-one, small or large group basis.

Councillor Sophie Linden, Cabinet Member for Crime, Sustainability and Customer Services, says: “This new centre is a real step forward in providing support to people with alcohol problems in Hackney. The Tudor Grove Centre will not only offer service users a wider range of treatments than have previously been available, but by working in closer partnership with the health service and our drug treatment centres, we will be able to provide a more holistic approach.”
