Dennis Nelson  runs our Family Support Service on Saturdays  which is called “ARCHS”. This part of  the EDAS service supports people that are stable in there recovery from substance misuse, and re-integrates them back into the community. Supporting them into work based programs, voluntary positions and mentoring positions within the community as well as education.

Dennis Nelson Shown in the picture above is a dedicated staff member who attended the opening of the Sea View Day Centre on 15/3/12.
 
Dennis is representing EDAS with this opening ceremony meeting the Mayor of Poole Councillor Graham Wilson and Phillip Mason the Manager of the Sea View Day Centre.

Dennis stated that we are all here to pull together with our partnerships to make Poole a better place to bring up our children and help them become assets to our community regardless of race, colour, mental ability, disability, ethnicity.

One example of good joint working was one of the EDAS service users who entered treatment as he was dependant on alcohol. He engaged in 12 weeks treatment and detoxed in the Flaghead unit. He then under went a further 12 weeks treatment with EDAS in which he engaged in voluntary work at the Sea View Centre, which  has now lead into an employment opportunity at the Sea View Centre. This evidence shows how our community partnerships are important aspects of enabling vulnerable people to develop and build a life which gives back to their families and community.
