Cascade Recovery Coaching is open to all those willing to get support for addiction.
Our recovery coaching empowers through connection, community, and hope. We inspire by example and our own profound journeys through addiction and recovery. We are motivated by our knowledge that a different life is always possible.
We support individuals, helping them to recognize their own needs, aspirations, and options; and empower them to uncover their own potential and reclaim their lives.
If you would like some 1:1 support, our Recovery Coaches are based at Cascade Cafe, 24 Baker Street, Brighton BN1 4JN.
We do not judge and serve lovely coffee too.
Please contact Christy for an informal chat on 07473554138 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
When drug addiction enters a family via one of its members, the effect can be devastating. If you have reason to believe or even a vague suspicion that someone close to you may have a drug problem, we know how you feel. We know what it is like to be alone with this problem. We remember the feelings of panic and frustration that resulted from this discovery. We in Families Anonymous have experienced this too.
The aim of the group is to help the family and friends of people with a current, suspected or former drug problem by providing mutual support and to offer a forum where experiences and anxieties can be shared. In the group members learn to come to terms with the problem that is disrupting their lives. Attending meetings helps members adopt an honest and consistent approach towards the addict. This in turn often brings him/her to realise that he/she needs help to live without drugs. Experience has shown that help for the family and friends means important help for the drug-dependent person.

We attempted to use others - our mates, friends, and even our children, as our sole source of identity, value and well being, and as a way of trying to restore within us the emotional losses from our childhoods. Our histories may include other powerful addictions which at times we have used to cope with our codependence.
We have all learned to survive life, but in CoDA we are learning to live life. Through applying the Twelve Steps and principles found in CoDA to our daily life and relationships both present and past - we can experience a new freedom from our self defeating lifestyles. It is an individual growth process. Each of us is growing at our own pace and will continue to do so as we remain open to God's will for us on a daily basis. Our sharing is our way of identification and helps us to free the emotional bonds of our past and the compulsive control of our present.
