Who we are

On 1 November 2012 drug and alcohol services in Ealing changed to make treatment journeys easier for individuals and the professionals that work with them.

The single borough-wide recovery service supports people from the start of their journey to the end. A number of services have come together to create this joint working partnership under the name – RISE – Recovery Interventions Service Ealing.

RISE is an integrated end-to-end treatment and recovery service which offers a wide range of interventions to Ealing residents 18 years and over who are experiencing difficulties with their drug and/or alcohol use. RISE is a consortium, led by CGL, and includes Central and North West London NHS Trust (CNWL),  Ealing Drug alcohol action team and service user-led organisation Build on Belief (BoB).
