Borders In Recovery

Borders In Recovery is a Lived Experience Recovery Community and a member of the Scottish Recovery Consortium. Visible recovery communities have become a mainstay of the Scottish recovery landscape over the last ten years. Recovery communities offer recovery support, meaningful activities, socialisation opportunities and health and wellbeing activities as well as many other leisure and personal development opportunities for their participants and volunteers.
