Dumbaron Rocks! – Our visit to DACA

Arts + Wellbeing

Last week we visited DACA (Dumbarton Area Council on Alcohol) to find out more about the great work they do…Here is Gerry’s blog and a few pictures he took on the day..

“We visited DACA last week to film and interview people involved on the project. We asked what services are provided and how people have been helped by coming to the project. Everyone we met was very open, friendly and hospitable and had a great sense of humour too! From talking to folk, we realised that DACA is a place you can go when you’re feeling down and need to talk to someone. The project gives people a huge boost in confidence, and is somewhere you feel safe in the knowledge that there are others in the same situation as yourself.”

  2. I would like to add what a great day we had and what you do is THE way forward with rehabilitation and moving on to a fullfilling life not just an exsistance. you help your clients find their feet and give a great choice of therapies and groups they can take part in.
    I’v believed in this way of treatment for all addiction for years as addiction is not the problem in most cases, take the addiction away and you find in most cases it’s a crutch to deal with some other underlying issue.
    I hope we can work together again and look forward to seeing you at the screening,

    Many Thanks Again

    Donna
