CGL Maidstone supports service users who have problems due to drugs and alcohol. Maidstone offers an open access service and wide-ranging support for anyone experiencing problems with drugs and alcohol.

The service promotes recovery by providing support throughout the treatment journey and beyond through its active recovery community. 

Our team of Peer Mentors provide additional support based on their personal knowledge and understanding of the recovery process. 

Our services include a range of activities and support from structured workshops to social activities. 

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