Jemma W. & Rachel Y.

‘Recovery Roots’ is run by professional therapists Jemma Wilson & Rachel Yates who between them have 30 years’ experience of working in the substance misuse field within rural communities, prisons and in charity led projects throughout the whole of North Yorkshire. Using interventions such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a holistic approach we support individuals through their recovery journey to achieve their own individual goal.

The recovery journey for anyone is a unique and challenging experience. Recovery can mean different things to different people whether they are recovering from addiction, bereavement, abuse or any other life changing event.


What we do, is a therapeutic one-to-one support service for those dealing with issues surrounding addiction from substance mis-use. We offer one-to-one support as well as support to access extra recovery focussed networks within the community to help you take back control. We also offer support and free advice and guidance (with consent) to carers and loved ones of our clients.
