Abstract
This article will consider how Calton Athletic Recovery Group (CARG) defines and supports recovery and will examine the challenges inherent in setting up and sustaining a project that has a primary aim to „bring recovery into the community." Based in the East end of Glasgow, the project was set up in 1985 as a football team and social group aimed at supporting and sustaining recovery from drug and alcohol problems. In the 25 years that CARG has been in existence, it has experienced highs and lows in terms of funding, resources, and wider support. The issues of sustainability and community identity are considered as experienced by the members of CARG
