Hebrides Alpha provides therapeutic employment to individuals with an addiction to alcohol and other drugs, and who are serious about addressing these issues.

Our service users assist us in delivering a wide range of services in the local community as can be seen by exploring the tabs on the left.

As well as participating in the therapeutic employment for 2 days each week, our service users participate in a range of employment related certificated training courses including Manual Handling, Health & Safety Awareness, First Aid, Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS card, which enables them to work on a building site), Cherry Picker and Forklift.

They learn new skills, work as part of a team, have a structure to their week, increase in confidence and self-esteem, they become more employable and they are able to get an honest, up-to-date employment reference from ourselves.
