Addiction Charity Re-Opens For Group Sessions With Open Access Day

The Tribal Project will be offering an open group support session on Mondays for anyone to get the help they need.

The drug and alcohol addiction charity will be opening their doors for group sessions once again after not being able to do so due to Covid regulations.

Paul Seddon and Ian Edmondson, the co-founders of The Tribal Project, have been helping people in Preston get clean since 2014.

Ian explains why they have felt the need to offer an open access session:

“We have been doing one to ones and remote support throughout the pandemic. As of Monday 17th May, we are back open for groups. We have decided that in response to the community need, we will be opening the Monday group as open access which basically means anybody is invited.

“These sessions on a Monday will be completely open access, if you have an issue with drugs, alcohol or associated mental health, just turn up on a Monday and you will get the support you need.

“Regardless of whether you’re funded or if we have an arrangement with whoever your care is provided by, we will still accept you. Throughout the next four weeks after that, we will also be opening for groups on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.”

Ian and Paul have both struggled with drug and alcohol addiction in the past, they now use that experience to help others turn their lives around.

They founded The Tribal Project in 2014 to combat drug and alcohol addiction through therapy and work experience.
