How we can help
We help adults who are struggling with drugs or alcohol. Our services can support you through your journey to recovery.

They’re open to anyone who lives in West Kent and is experiencing difficulties with drugs or alcohol.

We know that it isn’t easy to take that first step and ask for support. When you first contact us, one of our team will discuss your challenges and goals with you, and answer any questions you have about how we can support you.

We can answer any questions or worries you might have about:
- Drugs (including steroids)
- Over the counter medication
- How drugs or alcohol are affecting your mental or physical health
What we offer

- Group and one-to-one sessions

- Connections to a range of local partners in the care sector, and the NHS

Your recovery journey
Recovery is an ongoing journey that goes beyond achieving your initial goals. We will let you know what ongoing support you can access online or in your local community and provide you with resources you can use during and after your time with our service, as well as offering you Peer Mentor and Volunteering opportunities to help you gain new skills.
If you would like support from our service, please give us a call or refer yourself via the online form on the Referrals page.
If you are a professional or are concerned about someone you know and would like them to access our service, please discuss this with them before you make a referral on their behalf.
