Liberty Recycling aims to provide a safe and therapeutic environment for people with the rehabilitation support needed to remain free of illicit drug use and the opportunity to work towards a drug/alcohol free lifestyle including detoxification from methadone and benzodiazepines. The use of a therapeutic workplace to enhance recovery and develop learning with skill acquisition, is an innovative strategy.
