The Solid Rock Café has been at the very heart of Fraserburgh since the North East town was first affected by the effects of drug abuse in the late 1990s.
The outreach initiative provides desperately needed help for those battling life-controlling addictions, as well as support for family members, who also suffer when loved ones become entangled in substance abuse.
Operating a host of services, including a drop-in centre and one-on-one appointments, Solid Rock’s dedicated team of staff and volunteers work hard at building relationships, offering assistance and providing counselling to those in need.
The café is often the first port of call for those looking to change their lives, acting as a feeder to the Teen Challenge North East Scotland addiction recovery programme – referring people to the men’s centre, Sunnyrbae, and women’s facility, Benaiah.
A highlight of the Solid Rock’s packed calendar is its ‘Street Church’; held on the third Sunday of every month. At the events, hurting men and women enjoy a free meal before then listening to an inspiring life story from someone who has overcome their problems to live a life of freedom.
The café also carries out work in North East schools and with local youth groups, hosting drug prevention seminars to warn youngsters of the dangers of substance misuse.
