Wirral Ways to Recovery – change, grow, live.

Wirral Ways to Recovery logo


Change, grow, live (CGL) are leading a dynamic Recovery partnership in Wirral providing a new Integrated Treatment & Recovery Service with an underpinning ethos celebrating Wirral’s success in Harm Reduction along with the passionate belief that Recovery can be self-defined, contagious and a drug & alcohol free lifestyle can be within the reaches of any individual, irrespective of their circumstances.


We aim to create more opportunities for service users to begin and continue their recovery journey and add to this growing asset based resource and support system.


We have a range of partnership organisations that are supporting us with the new integrated service including:


◦Phoenix Futures
◦Advocacy in Wirral
◦Work Solutions
◦Spider Project


We also work with Intuitive Recovery, provide access to the SHARP program in Liverpool, work positively with the DWP, GP Shared Care and Community Pharmacists.


What we do


CGL lead the partnership, offering open access with a main Treatment & Recovery HUB located centrally in Birkenhead at 23 Conway Street, Birkenhead along with a health & wellbeing HUB in Chadwick Street, Moreton. We are also in the process of opening an abstinence hub also in central Birkenhead which will be in Hamilton Street.


We work hard to encourage community participation, ensuring our services are based on quality, timely interventions that provide what the individual needs, at the time that they need it, in the area where they live.


By understanding and responding to the requirements & issues in each ward we will develop an approach that responds to local needs; enabling Wirral residents to access support in a wide range of locations and times to suit varying lifestyles and demands.


We aim to connect with people experiencing difficulties as well as their families, making entry to treatment and recovery support as easy as possible. Focusing on what’s strong and not what’s wrong, we want you to be involved from the beginning.
