We have 2 Recovery Houses in Horsham, providing safe,  supported accommodation for up to two years for people in early recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
Turning Tides also has an Outreach Worker in Horsham, their job is to take the lead with assessing and supporting rough sleepers, building rapport and developing relationships with those who have been hard to engage with.
