Norfolk Alcohol and Drug Behaviour Change Service is a free and confidential service for adults (including offenders), families, carers and affected others.

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 get harm reduction advice, blood borne virus testing (including HIV and Hep C), naloxone training and access to other services.

Our recovery teams are based across the county and include doctors, recovery coordinators, nurses, recovery champions, peer mentors and volunteers.
