Trevi supports women in their recovery from addiction and domestic violence in a way that is nurturing and non-judgemental, helping them to heal and transform their lives.
Women who have faced past trauma, be it domestic abuse, homelessness or mental health problems are more likely to encounter drug and alcohol problems as a result. Trevi runs three centres in Plymouth which offer lifelines to many of these women and their children. One of their centres, Jasmine Mother’s Recovery Centre, provides residential rehabilitation, allowing mothers to remain with their child during treatment.
There has been an increased demand for their services since the start of Covid-19 outbreak as domestic abuse and alcohol consumption is rising and many of those women affected come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Funding from the NET’s Coronavirus Appeal, through the Devon Community Foundation, helped Trevi to support 160 women by providing important therapeutic interventions, accommodation, extra trained staff and personal protective equipment for staff to ensure the health and safety of women and their families in their care.
