About us
Hope North East was developed by original core group members of the Boro Drugs Forum, a service User group that developed recovery principles in services and the community. The forum acted as a voice for service users within Middlesbrough, developing drug and alcohol services alongside the Safer Middlesbrough Partnership.

Hope North East would like to acknowledge the work of two of the original Directors of Hope North East Richard Affleck and Darren King in the early development of the organisation. Thank you for your efforts gentlemen and we wish you both the very best.

The HNE founders Lawrie Duffy and Dave Conlon were core group members of the Boro Drugs Forum and spent many years developing the service to what it is today. The Joint Commissioner David Jackson and the SMP team were very supportive through the whole developmental process as were many other agencies and organisations who we work very closely with today.

The founders, staff and many of the volunteers have had their own addiction issues in the past and with support, motivation and a focus on the causes of addiction are in recovery. We understand that recovery is a journey and that abstinence is the start of that journey.

HNE is an abstinence based service, the journey of recovery can be a long one with many stages. We work with any individual on that road or who has the desire to stop. We are in the process of transitioning into becoming a registered charity. We are always looking to develop and move forward in giving individuals the best support and treatment for the needs of their recovery.
