Support for others

If you’re worried about someone else we can talk to you about the best way to support them.

Your first visit

A friendly member of staff will be at reception to greet you. If you're waiting for a group or appointment, you'll wait in our reception. There are places to sit and leaflets to read. If you'd like, you can bring a loved one for support.

 

Our welcome group

We run opiate and alcohol welcome groups. In the groups, you'll learn what to expect from us during your treatment journey and can ask us questions.

The Welcome Groups are for people who are new to the service and ready to start treatment. It'll be a small group. We know it can feel daunting, so if you'd like to bring a loved one with you, please do.
