Footsteps to Recovery is a throughcare, aftercare and recovery support service, working with individuals with substance misuse issues in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

The service offers peer-led, practitioner-led and therapist-led support, structured and less-structured programs, volunteering and training opportunities.

Footsteps to Recovery is an easy-to-access service. You can self-refer by ringing, emailing, or asking a key worker at another treatment service to make a referral on your behalf.

We can start working with you while you are still accessing treatment with another provider to better prepare you for aftercare.
