At ESCAPE we place the family at the heart of everything we do.

We understand the value of family in our work and believe addiction is an illness that affects the whole family. As a result, our objective is:

To provide structured support across the whole of Northumberland to families, friends, carers and partners of substance users.

At ESCAPE our Mission is:

To provide a comprehensive range of services for families and carers of drug and alcohol users in Northumberland.

To use an holistic, enabling approach and tailor our open access services to the needs of the individual.

To raise awareness of drug and alcohol issues within the communities of Northumberland and other areas.

ESCAPE stands for Education; Support; Counselling; Advice; Phone-line; Empathy. We believe that this reflects our approach to recovery support.
