Bridge is a substance misuse programme based in Northampton but working throughout the county.
For its mentoring programme, Bridge recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who have had drug or alcohol problems themselves, or close contact with people who have. They act as mentors or support workers to clients with drug or alcohol problems.
The aim is to help them deal with their substance misuse by providing practical support in relation to social aspects which impact negatively on their lives.
