Knowsley Integrated Recovery Service is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults (including offenders), young people, families, carers and affected others.

We aim to empower you to identify and realise your goals throughout your recovery journey, in order to live a healthier, safer life. If you are concerned about your or someone else’s drug or alcohol use, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch and speak to a member of the team about how we can support you. You will be greeted by a welcoming team of professionals who offer a range of opportunities from workshops, brief interventions, structured groups and one-to-one sessions. This is complemented by clinical services such as alcohol detoxification, harm reduction advice, blood-borne virus testing, naloxone training and referral to other services.
