A Bury St Edmunds-based charity is set to expand into neighbouring premises.

Leading drug and alcohol treatment charity Focus12 is moving into 83-87 Risbygate Street after years spent next door at number 82.

Charity bosses say the growth of the centre, which takes a holistic approach to treatment, is due to the success and positive impact it has had in recent months.

Lisa Grove, Focus12 CEO, said: ‘We are very excited to be growing our organisation to be able to help more people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, providing them with a safe and homely place to achieve abstinence.

“We’re keen to build on our excellent track record and have built effective relationships with our partners, both existing and new, alongside service users in the Suffolk community.

“The opening of our new premises will be celebrated later on this year, but marks an important step in the history of Focus12.

“We are a very proud resident of Bury and have enjoyed being part of the Risbygate Street community so it is lovely to be able to stay here and further establish our links.”

Focus12 provides structured residential and day care programs with the aim of helping clients and their families on the road to recovery.

* Focus12 will be taking part in Bury’s hidden gardens event on June 19 and will be opening its garden which is currently undergoing a transformation to become a therapeutic courtyard space.
