Our S.P.O.R.T initiative (Supporting Positive Outcomes in Recovery Together), aims to support those aged 18+ who are in recovery for drug or alcohol addiction, by providing positive lifestyle alternatives through the medium of sport and physical activity. The S.P.O.R.T programme will complement individuals existing treatment and aftercare plans and help fill the void left after their substance misuse, helping them to become active and contributing members within their communities and in their local sports clubs.
The programme is coordinated and facilitated by LSP staff & tutors and takes place in Residential and Community based Addiction Treatment Centres.
S.P.O.R.T. is currently funded by Sport Ireland/Dormant a/c’s and the Midwest Regional Drug and Alcohol Forum.
For more information on the S.P.O.R.T programme, please contact Liam by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 061- 524976.

My physical and mental health is perfect, gave me confidence again that I thought I had lost. It has given me structure to maintain sobriety.
I just started exercise in treatment 4 months ago. I had never done exercise in my life and now I exercise every day and its great. I love it. Gave me something to look forward to and to better myself.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself with someone believing in you, you change and start believing in yourself. Anything is possible.
What you put in you get out! Go hard or go home! Release the beast (anger in a positive way)
This programme is exactly what people need in treatment. Gives them something to rely on when in a lonely situation.
Good Programme and the equipment provided to Bushy Park genuinely helped me immensely in my duration in treatment.
The benefit of this programme in treatment is astronomical for both mental and physical health.
Sport is very important for your mental health and recovery.
This programme has made me build up confidence and I’m determined now to live a happy, healthy life.
