LEAP is an intensive programme for people who want to stop drinking or using drugs. It is a therapeutic community. It supports people for three months, with structured activities every day. These include group work, workshops, presentations, education, and training. There are also recreation and relaxation activities. Detoxification can also be provided from modest amounts of drugs or alcohol. People who take part in the programme can access supported housing at Randolph Crescent Hostel, run by the City of Edinburgh Council. Access to Industry also works with people on the programme, to help them start training or education, or to get a job, as part of their recovery plan. People who complete the programme can get support for up to two years after they finish.
