RISE (Recovery and Integration Service) is a Devon-wide adult substance misuse service, working with people with alcohol and drug problems. The service takes an abstinence-based recovery-focused approach which means that it looks at the person (and their family’s) needs as a whole and supports them by linking with other agencies as needed.
The RISE service focuses on harm reduction, particularly in the early stages of treatment for people with high-risk lifestyles. Part of this includes offering advice and information and work is under way to improve the provision of needle exchange facilities.
