Salary: From £21,012 depending on experience £1,122 Regional Allowance

We are RAPt, a UK leading provider of drug and alcohol treatment services, including 12-Step programmes. We deliver treatment and aftercare programmes - in prisons and in the community - which help people move away from addiction and crime. These services provide a variety of support, including advice, counselling, group work and intensive treatment.


At RAPt we believe that all people who are addicted to or misusing substances should have access to support which is effective in breaking their addiction or misuse. People should be given help and support to address all their needs, so they can transform their lives permanently, including turning away from crime.


Official figures show that the majority of drug addicts who complete the RAPt 12-Step rehab in prison stay drug and crime free on release, compared with a minority of those who don't receive an intensive programme.Our programmes work, and because of this, after a recent round of re-contracting, we are delighted to be going through a period of expansion (30% growth 2012-2013), and want to add new and expanded functions to enable us to deliver our vision of high quality and effective recovery services.
