Supporting substance and alcohol misuse recovery in East Sussex

Active in Recovery (AiR) is an innovative and creative charity whose mission is to provide interesting, artistic, relaxing and therapeutic activities for people in East Sussex recovering from substance and alcohol misuse.

We also support people with dual diagnosis mental health issues, and their carers and supporters. AiR was initially created in 2014 as a peer support project and has developed into an independent charity with a remit to cover the whole of East Sussex.

AiR provides safe spaces in which clients can enjoy themselves and not think about their problems. Within group activities we try to maintain an environment where people can try to forget their issues for a while and focus on positive things such as artistry, relaxation and mindfulness, socialising, exploring new activities and learning new skills.
