What we offer

We have a range of options to help with your recovery.

These include workshops, initial assessments, structured groups and one-to-one key working sessions. We have a needle exchange where you can find harm reduction advice. There is also blood-borne virus testing, naloxone training and access to other services. As well as our base service, our recovery team can also provide outreach in the community. This means they can support you wherever you live. 

 

In addition, to support with drug and alcohol-related issues, we now offer free counselling for problem gambling. Help is available if you gamble yourself, or if you are affected by the gambling of a family member or friend. Counselling is delivered by our partner, Breakeven. Please call 01273833722 or email [email protected] for more information.
