Druglink article 2013 – Wrap around service by Lauren Johnston

Circle of Care (CC) originally developed as a recommendation from Melting the Iceberg of Scotland’s Drug and Alcohol Problem: Report of the Independent Enquiry (2010). A CC can be described as a group of people who meet together to support the individual achieve what they aspire to in life. Within the setting of drugs and alcohol, the circle acts as a community around the person to support them in their recovery and aims to maximise the potential of family, social networks and community resources. The term focus person is used to distinguish that individual who is seeking support from those other individuals who make up the circle.
