More than 30 Britvic employees volunteered for the day with Druglink to help develop our client support facilities. The volunteer day saw a team from Britvic’s Marketing & Innovation department redecorating the communal spaces at Oxygen Recovery to create an even warmer, more welcoming environment for clients to help aid in their recovery from substance misuse. A second team of Britvic volunteers worked to create an outdoor therapy space at Druglink’s head office. The garden therapy area will aid the client recovery programme of therapeutic approaches that aim to improve both the body and mind. Wellbeing and physical activities such as yoga, drama, martial arts and gardening will all be able to be carried out in a comforting outdoor space. Read the full press release.

Druglink has today launched a new counselling service to serve the local community. Oxygen Breathe has been set up through funding from The Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire and Dacorum Borough Council to grow the counselling and related services Druglink can offer. With levels of mental ill health growing, there is more need than ever to provide accessible treatment services. Oxygen Breathe has been designed as a counselling service for everyone, even those who would otherwise struggle to pay for it. People in Hertfordshire who need help and can afford it, will be asked to pay the market-rate for a counselling session. Those who need help but cannot afford the market rate will be offered sessions at a pay-what-you-can-afford rate. Read the full press release.
The launch event was attended by The Mayoress of the Borough of Dacorum, The Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, members of Hertfordshire County Council, local community partners and Druglink staff.
