What we offer

drink and drugs purple icon

We will support you if you are struggling with drugs and alcohol.

We will tailor the support so it suits you. This could include one-to-one working, group work or workshops. We will help you create goals and support you to achieve them.

 

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 providing services at our base, 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.
