Camden Community Drug Service is a free and confidential drug service for adults in Camden and Kilburn.

We provide a welcoming, open access service for Camden residents who are experiencing difficulties with drugs.

We work with people who are using any type of drugs, including: opiates, stimulants, cannabis and new psychoactive drugs. We provide a variety of different services to support individual needs.

We can help non-dependent drug users, individuals who work and need to be seen at weekends or in the evenings as well as dependent drug users in need of prescribing or more intensive treatment.

Our services include key work, counselling, groups and complementary therapies, as well as a range of support groups and peer led activities. Our peer led Recovery Café at 184 Royal College Street provides a safe, informal space for service users to build new, supportive networks. We believe that everyone has the potential to change and will work with you to help you to regain control of your life and reach your goals.
