Welcome to the AiR Website

Aberdeen in Recovery was formed by a small group of people in recovery in 2012, supported by Aberdeen City Alcohol and Drugs Partnership to help reduce stigma and to help raise the profile of recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol.

A steering group of people in recovery now guide the project, with the help of some local services and the continued support from the Aberdeen City ADP. A handful of volunteers, all in recovery themselves, co-ordinate our efforts across the city.

We now have in the region of 50 recovery community members involved in our community activities. Our group consists those who have been touched by addiction – family members and those in recovery from alcohol and drugs. Click here for more details about us.

Our message is simple…RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE!


AiR launch new…

‘Recovery Hub’

Aberdeen in Recovery are embarking on a new project in which we will have a Recovery Hub in the city, based in the VSA Young Carers Project, 38 Castle Street, Castlegate, Aberdeen, AB11 5YU.

Our Hub has been developed after a series of events, like our Conversation Cafes, where the general feedback was that there was a lack of safe environments in Aberdeen where people in recovery can meet without drugs and alcohol be readily available.

The Hub will allow people to come together from 1pm – 4pm every Friday afternoon and meet with like-minded people to help them in their journey and discuss what works for them, and what maybe didn’t work quite so well!!!  Group activities will run from 3-4pm.

The ‘Hub’ is run by people in recovery from alcohol/drug misuse and family members.  It offers opportunities for people to volunteer, develop skills and become engaged in their local community.

We have a commitment to those in recovery and those seeking, as such, we aim to provide the service that you require, only with your feedback can we acheive this.

….Come along and find out more from those who’ve been there!
