Issues we can help you with
Our alcohol recovery coordinators are here to help you. They'll discuss your drinking patterns and behaviours, and then help you set goals. We have a specialist clinical team who can support you with detox. We run a range of groups, sessions and meetings with other people who are going through the same thing. If you haven’t done this before, it might seem scary at first, but trust me, we’re all on your side and here to help.Alcohol treatment options
We understand that coming off drugs can be tough, no matter what you’re using or how much. We're here to help you understand more about what you're taking and how it's affecting you. We'll also talk about your journey with using drugs. There's a range of options to help, and we'll develop a plan with you to figure out what's the most important. This might include medication or detox. We also run groups, meetings and sessions with other people who are going through a similar thing. Walking through the door is a big step. We’re here to make sure that the journey is as informative, compassionate and supportive as it can be.Drug treatment options

Your first visit
When you arrive, a friendly member of our team will be on reception, waiting to greet you. You can help yourself to water and browse our leaflets and magazines whilst you wait. We know this can be daunting so if you’d like to bring a loved one along, feel free.
If our kitchen is open when you arrive, you’re welcome to make yourself a hot drink. You can also watch tv, read and play games whilst you wait for your appointments or after. This can help you to relax, plus you can meet some of our peers. They have lived experience of drug use and can support you along the way.
