Newham Rise is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults and people affected by someone else's substance use.

We offer a range of opportunities from workshops, brief interventions, structured groups and one-to-one key working sessions. We also have needle exchange where you can get harm reduction advice, blood borne virus testing (including HIV and Hep C), naloxone training and access to other services.

We have services in Stratford, Canning Town and Manor Park.

How to contact us

We always welcome new clients, so please get in touch if you are interested in getting help from the service or you’d just like to ask some questions. You can email us on Feel free to bring someone with you on your first visit.

We are based at 327 High Street (Stratford), 3 Beckton Road (Canning Town) and 997 Romford Road (Manor Park). We complete assessments Monday – Friday, between 11-1. Please drop into any of our hubs before 11am if you would like an assessment on the day. If you are unable to attend any hub on these days/times, you can call us on 0800 652 3879 and we can look to offer you an alternative appointment.
