NHS run alcohol and drug recovery service which offers inspirational care and supported recovery for people living with substance misuse problems across Cumbria.


With bases in Barrow, Carlisle (as well as outreach to Penrith Foyer), Kendal, Penrith, Workington and Whitehaven, Unity offers all strands of recovery focused alcohol and drug treatment.


Our services are available to anyone - from those showing early signs of substance misuse to those who have lived with an addiction for years and to family members requiring support.


As soon as somebody makes that first step towards recovery they will access the most appropriate care for them with a plan tailored specifically to their needs.
