On Tuesday 23rd April, Turning Point's substance misuse services in Manchester hosted an open day.

Around 60 people attended the event which took place at The Smithfield Service, located in the heart of Manchester. Gill Campbell, Operations Manager at the Smithfield Service welcomed the guests, followed by a presentation by Dr Jack Leach, the consultant GP to the service.

Visitors learned more about the changes and developments across the Manchester services; tried out therapeutic interventions; gained greater insight into the clinical programmes and had the opportunity to speak to both service users and staff.

Gill Campbell, Operations Manager at the Smithfield Service said; "This was an excellent opportunity for people to see how the services operate and to have the chance to speak directly to service users and staff. We are proud of all the great work we do here and it was great to open our doors to those who would like to find out more."

A former service user at the Smithfield service said; "I got so much from Turning Point and from then on my life changed. I've now reached the point where I'm safe. My family have seen the change in me. Alcohol isn't even on my radar anymore."
