Developing People for a Brighter Future

About THOMAS

THOMAS delivers a range of holistic recovery focused services, which take people from within prison or hospital, through detox and residential rehabilitation into community based provision.

We offer drop in facilities, assertive outreach, recovery programmes incorporating cognitive, social and interpersonal approaches, support with wider issues associated with addiction.

We provide residential provision, support for those living in their own homes and community-based programmes.

We currently operate in Blackburn with Darwen, Salford, North and East Lancashire and Manchester and take the majority of our referrals from across the North West.

For our residential rehabilitation unit in Blackburn, we accept referrals from across the country.
