Cheshire East Drug and Alcohol Service is a free and confidential service for adults, people involved in the criminal justice system, families, carers and affected others in Cheshire East.

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

Our drug and alcohol recovery teams are based across the Cheshire East and include doctors, recovery coordinators, nurses, recovery champions, peer mentors and volunteers. Part of the Cheshire East delivery partnership includes working collaboratively with Emerging Futures and Recovery Works to provide a wider offer for service users and their families.
