More Information about The Basement Recovery Project

The Basement Recovery Project is an award winning, progressive and innovative Social Enterprise with our HQ based in Halifax, Calderdale.  We also operate in Todmorden, Huddersfield and Dewsbury.  We provide user-led, peer-to-peer and person centred health and social care services within the substance and alcohol misuse field. The project has evolved primarily as a response to gaps in addiction treatment service delivery and we now enjoy a positive reputation for effective and flexible service delivery at the cutting edge of the changing direction in Substance Misuse Treatment.

The project currently delivers a range of service provision. We deliver specialist alcohol and drug recovery services around detoxification and aftercare. We provide a user-led drop-in Breakfast Club which works directly with the most difficult and hard-to-engage clients and we provide user-representation within various professional authorities including both the Community Safety Partnership and Supporting People Services.

The Basement Recovery Project is a company limited by guarantee (not for profit), however, based on our aims and objectives, our business model is a social enterprise.

The project’s income is derived from a mix of grants, contracts and charitable donations from both the statutory and non-statutory sectors. This diversity provides a degree of a financial security for the organisation. The Basement Recovery Project will offer specific expertise in aftercare services, evidenced by our current delivery of structured Recovery Day Programmes in Calderdale and Kirklees. Our programmes are a unique departure from traditional clinical treatment services, where therapy is directed at self-discovery through a collaborative peer-led approach.

Past clients have defined our service as:
