STAR – East Sussex Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service


Recovery is about building and sustaining a positive and fulfilling life where you are not bound to your past but where you invent and create your own future. Recovery is yours!

Five ways to wellbeing... Connect /  Be Active / Take Notice  / Keep Learning / Give

East Sussex ‘Change, grow, live’ (CGL, formerly Crime Reduction Initiatives / CRI) and East Sussex Adult Social Care offer drug and alcohol treatment, recovery and wellbeing support to all adults affected by alcohol and other drugs, their loved ones and communities, across the whole of East Sussex. All services are free, and we work in partnership with a range of organisations to ensure those we work with are fully supported.

‘STAR', the East Sussex Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service, operates from Hastings and Eastbourne, and offers 'outreach support' to people who find it difficult access services, e.g. those in more rural areas or who are affected by mobility issues.

STAR services supports all adults in East Sussex to make positive choices and changes to their drug and alcohol use, whatever the level of use.
