St Luke's Service - Barking & Dagenham

St Luke's Service is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults in Barking and Dagenham.

We make support more accessible for those in need and remove the stigma of substance misuse issues. By adopting a radically new trauma-informed approach, we operate in several satellite services with a central hub in St Luke’s. Community interventions will also be delivered at sites across Barking and Dagenham, including Health Centres and local services, which ensures that barriers to seeking treatment are removed and support is widely accessible.

We also work with the service user charity, Build On Belief (BOB), to deliver peer-led activities through a weekend social club and develop a thriving service user community in Barking and Dagenham.

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. Feel free to bring someone with you on your first visit.
