About the Service

The Addictions Division comprises of community drug and alcohol treatment and recovery services, a specialist inpatient detoxification unit and Greater Manchester wide homeless services. Achieve provide support for people experiencing problems with drug and alcohol use across Bury, Bolton, Salford and Trafford. We are an NHS led service, working with multiple agencies in a unique partnership model.  This partnership model enables us to work with patients in a holistic way focusing on the person and not the “problem”. Our model of working is unique as we offer more to our service users and you will be directly involved in helping service users through all stages of their recovery.

Achieve work with and in communities. We value a healthy work/life balance, and the welfare of staff is a priority. Opportunities for flexible working can be explored.
