Turning Point Scotland’s North Ayrshire Prevention, Early intervention And Recovery (P.E.A.R.) Service is a drug and alcohol support service based in Stevenston in North Ayrshire. We involve all of the individuals who use our service to shape our service. They have an input into what activities we offer that will benefit them in their recovery and beyond. We do this with the support of TPS Connects.

Your journey, your way. Your service, your say

Prevention and Early intervention

We get involved in our local communities and attend various other groups and events across North Ayrshire to enable us to offer advice, guidance and signpost individuals to practical services to meet their needs. We also offer a drop in service where individuals can attend without an appointment to access advice and information. The drop in’s are aimed at individuals not engaging in services to offer an informal, comfortable space to meet other people.

Our drop in’s are open every weekday morning from 9.30am.

Psycho-social Support

The service is open to men and women aged 18 and over who are aware they have a substance use problem and would like to start their recovery journey.

To those willing to engage in the service we will do an assessment to enable us to build a person centred support plan with every individual. We offer ongoing psycho-social support to those who are experiencing problems due to their alcohol or drug use. This will take place in the form of one-to-ones with a named worker or recovery focussed group work. We work alongside our local statutory service, North Ayrshire Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service (NADARS), to ensure that everyone in North Ayrshire is accessing the most appropriate support suited to their needs.


North Ayrshire P.E.A.R. Service works with people to take steps towards recovery. Each individual will create a personalised recovery action plan which will detail how they wish to work towards their recovery and the goals they want to achieve along the way. Individuals will receive support to explore their recovery options whilst working alongside other agencies, communities, families and other relevant groups. Those who use the service will also be encouraged and supported to improve and maintain relationships with family, friends and the community to reduce the impact of social isolation.

The North Ayrshire P.E.A.R. Service also operates family support groups open to anyone affected by someone else’s substance use.


Anyone can refer themselves by dropping in or calling. An external agency can also make a referral on someone’s behalf. Contact us for a referral form.
