Achieve Recovery Services

Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) is proud to be the lead provider of substance misuse treatment and recovery service in the boroughs of Bolton, Bury, Salford and Trafford. 

Our approach, under the name ‘Achieve’ will focus on delivering innovative and high performing substance misuse treatment and recovery with our partners using a proven approach that will promptly identify and support people affected by alcohol or drug misuse into appropriate treatment. We are committed to improving health and social outcomes for service users and families allowing more people to make a meaningful recovery from drug and alcohol misuse.

Achieve Bolton, Bury, Salford and Trafford also aims to provide a service which has a sustainable impact on the health and wellbeing of the residents of Bolton, Bury, Salford and Trafford which will reduce the impact of alcohol and drug misuse on children, young people and families.

We will work collaboratively with a wide spectrum of local health and social care providers with specific focus on relationships with mental health services, criminal justice agencies, the third sector and other organisations who will be involved in the promotion of recovery and rehabilitation.

Complex Lifestyles

Complex Lifestyles provide an innovative and holistic approach to some of the most vulnerable individuals in the Bolton under Achieve Bolton, Salford, Trafford Treatment and Recovery Service.

The complex Lifestyle service will contribute to a number of national and local outcomes such as:

  • Improving physical, emotional and mental health
  • Improving self-care and living skills
  • Reduction in risky health behaviours
  • Improvement in managements of tenancy and accommodation.
  • Reducing avoidable emergency admissions
  • Reduce emergency re-admissions

The complex Lifestyle service will specifically target clients who are aged between 18 and 65 and are identified as having three or more of the following condition/risk behaviours:

  • Alcohol or drug misuse
  • Mental ill health ( including self-harm behaviours and risk of suicide)
  • Offending or risk of offending ( or victim of crime)
  • Poor unstable accommodation or homelessness.

The following agencies are identified as the initial referral route:

  • Bolton NHS Foundation Trust A&E
  • The RAID team
  • Wards C3 Bolton Hospital ( Or acute Inpatient admissions)
  • GPs/Primary Care
  • Integrated Neighbourhood Teams
  • Families First

The service will work with other organisations to support individuals with complex lifestyles to engage with services that will best meet their needs. Once a referral has been received, the team will make contact with the client within 2 working days. A person centred home visit or a mutually convenient session will then be arranged where an individual action plan will be collaboratively agreed between the practitioner and client. The practitioner will then work intensively with the client for a maximum of 12 weeks.


Achieve services in Bury

Achieve Bury will take a whole-person approach and help to address issues such as employment, education, housing, finances and relationships which can prevent or slow down recovery. 

We have teamed up with The Big Life Group which can support our service users to rebuild their lives and work towards an optimistic future.  Families and young people in particular can be especially affected by a family member living with a substance misuse problem, so we will also be working with Early Break, an organisation dedicated to supporting families and giving children and young people a voice, and work with them to improve family life.

GMMH has years of experience and expertise in the field of substance misuse – we have been rated as ‘Outstanding’ for our alcohol and drug recovery services by the Care Quality Commission and we are extremely proud to welcome Bury in to the Achieve family.

If you are worried about your own, or someone else’s substance misuse issues, you can contact us on 0161 271 0020 or  GPs and other health professionals can also refer individuals to us via these contact details.

Opening times:

Monday - 9am to 6.45pm

Tuesday to Friday - 9am to 4.30pm (phones answered until 5pm)
