Telford Aftercare Team (TACT) was founded in 2012 to help people in their ongoing recovery from using drugs or alcohol. the service was set up for recovering service users and service users who were still struggling to come to terms with their addiction.
By empowering people to continue their recovery after their substance use we believe that people can go on to lead a productive and fulfilling life in the community.
The purpose of the Telford After Care Team is to ensure there is a clear and safe program of recovery options available for people who are drug and/or alcohol dependant. Some of the services we offer include group activities, benefits advice, education and training and voluntary work.
