Inclusion Cambridgeshire seeks to engage adult drug users, increase the numbers who complete meaningful treatment and support as many people as possible to move on into education, training and employment opportunities.

As part of the larger Inclusion Cambridgeshire service, Wisbech offers substance misuse treatment to the community.

This treatment is based on the collaborative recovery care plan approach between Service User and Recovery Worker and starts at the assessment process.

Treatment is available and offered based on the service user’s recognised need to improve their social, emotional and physical needs, this could be;

At Wisbech, we work collaboratively with external agencies and when our service users are working with more than 1 agency, when appropriate they may be asked to join us for a joint-key-working approach.

Treatment for Recovery, Safe Guarding of Vulnerable Adults and Children are 2 of our key priorities at Inclusion Wisbech.
