Research, Service evaluations
The Achieve Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service has provided holistic support to adults and young people experiencing substance misuse issues in Bolton, Salford and Trafford since 2018 and Bury since 2019.
The Achieve Partnership comprises organisations with expertise directly and indirectly related to substance misuse and recovery: clinical expertise, outreach, training, housing, and grant funding for community groups.
In 2021 Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust (GMMH) and The Big Life Group (on behalf of the Achieve Partnership) commissioned SQW to undertake an independent process evaluation of the Achieve Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service. The evaluation was delivered over five months, and involved a series of semi-structured interviews and focus groups, a document review and monitoring data analysis.
