CGL Southwark is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults over 18 who live in the London Borough of Southwark.

We support people from any background, using any kind of drug and/or alcohol, who want to recover or change. We work at all levels, from prevention and early engagement, through to recovery. We understand people may also be dealing with other issues and we offer a range of 'wrap around' services to support these. Service users are in control of their treatment and are supported to achieve their own recovery or change goals.
