Make a referral

Referrals can be made by another agency or in person. An individual can walk into Stockton Recovery Service as self refer themselves in. As an open access service we endeavour to initiate the assessment process as soon as the referral is taken.  

Referrals can be taken over the phone, where a dedicated staff member will initiate the completion of the Change Grow Live (CGL) registration form. This form allows us to gather basic detail on the individual being referred into the service but also identifies the drug of choice and the nature and complexity of the substance misuse. 

Can’t attend your appointment?

If for whatever reason an individual cannot attend an appointment we ask that they contact the service and leave a message with the admin team. This will be passed back to the Recovery Coordinator, and another appointment will be given for the service user to attend.
