Changing Lives Ridley Villas is an abstinent-based residential unit based in Newcastle for women from both Newcastle and Gateshead who are in recovery from addiction who are working towards increased contact and/or full time care of their children, and when ready, are supported to move on to independent accommodation. The service works directly with a multi-agency groups which include Drug Treatment, Social Care, Health and other voluntary groups to develop a robust package of support for families. The approach they use is a strength based one which considers the needs for the whole family. They are currently working with the Family Court Judges to consider how to best support families coming in to the court system as a result of substance misuse.
