New Website for Drug and Alcohol Recovery in Calderdale

Calderdale in Recovery launches a new website today that aims to offer more information and support advice for people wishing to access drug and alcohol treatment services in Calderdale.

Calderdale in Recovery (CiR), a community organisation working in Halifax and Todmorden, provides recovery orientated social support and inspiration to people who use drugs and alcohol. Their aim is to promote that recovery from addiction is possible; to reduce the stigma attached to those affected and to develop support networks and community based opportunities to help people stay well.

Their existing website was four years old, and while it had been a popular and valued resource for individuals and organisations alike, CiR members felt that it was time for the website to be overhauled. The new site has a modern clean look and makes it easy for visitors to find their way around and get to the information they need. Unlike the original, the new website is responsive to the device it is viewed on making it easier to use on smartphones, tablets and PCs too.

The redevelopment of the website also gave CiR the opportunity to review and update the site content, in particular with the recent changes to adult drug and alcohol services within Calderdale – Calderdale Recovery Steps.

Andy Bryant, Recovery Builder and Chair of Calderdale in Recovery is delighted;

“We are really pleased with the new website. It provides us with a platform to continue our aim of promoting recovery from addiction and to help reduce the stigma associated with it. We hope to provide more information, news, events and stories as we continue to develop the site. If there are any organisations who wish to be features on our site, we would love to hear from them.”
