With You - Shropshire Recovery Partnership

ePaper
The charity, which has a centre in Shrewsbury and runs confidential outreach services across the county, provides support and advice to people struggling with alcohol, drug and mental health - both by self-referral or referrals from GPs.

A study previously published in 2016 by Drink Wise, Age Well and backed by With You Shropshire, detailed that age-related reasons for turning to alcohol are often the most potent and difficult to combat alone, including dealing with retirement (40%), bereavement (26%), loss of sense of purpose in life (20%), fewer opportunities to socialise (18%) and a change in financial circumstances (18%).

Between 2016 and 2023, GPs in the region have referred 277 clients to the With You service, which is helping to relieve the burden on the NHS by diverting care into the service, which provides a host of holistic therapies that are tailored to the needs of each service user.
