Inspire East Lancs is East Lancashire’s Integrated Substance Misuse Service. With locations in Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Ribble Valley and Rossendale, we offer advice, guidance and support to anyone worried about their own or somebody else’s substance or alcohol use. 

What we do and how we do it

Inspire East Lancs offers a friendly, welcoming service to all visitors. Our team of passionate, committed staff, volunteers and peer mentors are here to help you to tackle the root causes of your problems. We will support you to focus on your strengths and make positive changes in your life.

We support adults through:

  • A service that is tailored to the individual’s goals
  • Prescribing services
  • Drug and/or alcohol detox
  • Support into education and employment
  • Help with access to housing
  • Group work
  • One-to-one appointments
  • Counselling
  • Peer support
  • Referrals to residential rehabilitation

Once you’ve had an assessment and welcome appointment, you will be allocated a recovery worker who will meet with you, either as part of a small group or on a one-to-one basis.
