The review of the Women’s only group shows that over the two years since its launch, it has had a positive impact on women’s general wellbeing and recovery. Importantly, it demonstrates the value of providing a safe women-only environment for contagious recovery to take place and to provide an effective entry point into treatment.

As a model, it is effective in engaging women in substance misuse treatment presenting with multiple issues such as domestic violence, mental health and safeguarding concerns and has helped them sustain meaningful long-term outcomes.
