Addaction, the drugs and alcohol treatment charity, is giving its centres a makeover as part of a scheme to improve accessibility for users.
The changes are based on an informal survey of both clients and staff to find out how to make the charity's centres more welcoming.
So far, 10 centres have been given a facelift, with reception areas painted yellow and 'welcome' signs put up.
Rosie Brocklehurst, Addaction's director of communications, said: "I wouldn't go so far as to say that changing rooms changes lives, but it does show how communications and design can, with a little thought, support the whole treatment experience for a user."
As part of the improvements, the charity is hoping to get funding to produce new literature.
