The Gravesend substance misuse services supports service users who have found themselves with problems due to drugs and alcohol. 

The service supports people living in Gravesham, Dartford and Swanley. 

The Gravesend service offers an open access service and a wide range of support for anyone suffering problems around drugs and alcohol. 

We also have a team of Peer Mentors, people who understand and have personal experience of the recovery process and who provide additional support to service users. 

We also signpost service users to other support services in the local area, including housing, health and mutual aid support such as AA, NA and SMART Recovery.

Service users in Dartford can attend a satellite service based at the Dartford YMCA.
