Updates to the service:

  • There is currently no face-to-face drop-in service. Assessments and onwards referrals will be carried out via telephone.
  • To help you stay safe, Community Addictions Service, GP’s and Pharmacies are managing prescriptions with relaxed pick-up and home delivery if you need it.
  • All of our groups are all now running online. You can find out the details of all the groups and activities we are providing for the community on our Facebook page.

  • We are still accepting referrals for recovery support where you will be allocated a one-to-one support worker who will develop a recovery plan with you.
  • We offer a limited doorstep check-in for people who can't get out or who might benefit from a friendly face coming round and dropping off information or provisions.
  • If you need injecting equipment provision and naloxone, we can deliver it to you. Give us a ring on 01506 657992 and leave a message letting us know your phone number and we'll arrange the delivery.

Your first visit

When you first walk through the door to our service, a friendly volunteer or member of staff will welcome you and ask how they can help you. Please come in, grab a cup of tea or coffee, and get a sense of the place.

Many of our volunteers have been in the same situation as you and know what it's like to get help for the first time. They will do everything they can to put you at ease.

"Next Tuesday, I will be nine months sober. I have come a long way with some hard obstacles in my way, but I got over them and still continue to do so.

I am just so thankful to the West Lothian hub for all their help what a team the work you guys do is on another level. I don't know where I would be today if I didn't give you guys a chance. The friends I have met in recovery are amazing; what a bond we have. I am glad I can call you my friends; we help each other, and to me, that's special. For over 30 years I abused alcohol, my health was at an all-time low, as was my mental and physical health. Now it's like I have been reborn. I feel amazing. And I am glad I gave people the chance to help me. My wee family has been with me every step of the way through the moods and the tears. Yes, there have been plenty of them over the past nine months, wondering if I had the strength to carry on. But I did, and I will remain to do so. So thank yous all so so much for all your help and guidance these past nine months. It's now my turn to Change Grow Live."
