We're here to support people living in Croydon.

We can help you break free from harmful patterns of behaviour and feel happier and healthier. We tailor the drug and alcohol support we offer to fit your needs.

There are lots of different ways you can get help from the service. This includes workshops, groups, one-to-one sessions, access to a nurse, and substitute medication if you need it.

We also have a needle exchange where you can get advice on staying safe, blood-borne virus testing (including HIV and Hepatitis C), naloxone training and access to other services.

We're here to help you set your goals and achieve them. We'll listen to your needs and make sure the treatment suits you. We will provide advice and information about the options available to help you stay safe and well. Our service is free, confidential, and non-judgemental.

We want to hear what you’ve got to say. Making sure we’re meeting your expectations and providing a high-quality, effective service is hugely important to us.

Getting your feedback is the best way to ensure that we know what you like and what you think we could do better.

Your feedback will be used to shape changes that are made locally within the service, as well as national practice – we really do value what you think and want to make the support you receive as positive as possible.
