Jackie Baillie welcomed the fantastic work being undertaken across Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven to help people who are living with addiction when she paid a visit to Dumbarton Rock Recovery open day.

During the event at the Concord Centre in Dumbarton, she spoke with representatives from a range of services who work locally with people at all stages of addiction.

The Dumbarton constituency MSP was invited along by Bobby Walker of West Dunbartonshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership to see the pantry for families, the café and the weekly meeting for individuals in recovery.

Organisations there on the day included the Blue Triangle, Penumbra and the Harm Reduction mobile unit run by West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership as well as Alternatives, DACA and others. Jackie spoke to volunteers who shared their own personal experiences with addiction and found out more about the services they offer.

Jackie Baillie said: “There is a wealth of fantastic work going on across Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven to help people who are living with addiction.

“It was really interesting to hear about the efforts which are being made to signpost people to services that can assist during all stages of addiction including recovery.

“I want to thank Bobby, his team and everyone from the organisations who attended at the Dumbarton Rock Recovery open day for their continuing work to help people across the area. This support is invaluable and is improving as well as saving lives.”
