HISTORY OF THE PROJECT
Alex Rae, former professional footballer, has for years considered the possibility of an abstinence based program in the West of Scotland and in 2006 started to make plans to bring his plans to fruition. He approached Keira MacDougall of KJM Events Ltd and together they embarked on a challenging fundraising campaign to raise the funds to get the Project opened.
The Project opened on 6th May 2007 - results so far have been far better than even we expected.
THE VISION OF THE SECOND CHANCE PROJECT
The project was set up in Glasgow to support service users affected by drug and alcohol dependency by providing them with a range of treatment options delivered through structured day treatment that integrates a 12-Step approach with clinical and psycho-social interventions within a care package based on individual need.
Community abstinence based day programme for rehabilitation of Alcoholics & Drug Users - offering an otherwise unavailable treatment option. It is a 1 year/3 phased program based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous - low threshold de-tox, comprehensive need assessments, individualised care-planning, group counselling, one to one therapy, lectures, holistic therapies and living skills training
