Service available in:
We help people with drug problems both in their local community and as an inpatient.
If you have concerns about the amount of drugs or alcohol that you or someone you know is misusing, you can self-refer into Brook Place (for drug misuse) or Liverpool Community Alcohol Service, or discuss your concerns with your GP.
If you are in urgent need of help we recommend you contact your GP, call 111 or visit your nearest A&E department. They will be able to help you stay safe and link you into a relevant treatment service so that you can begin your journey to recovery.
If you live in Liverpool and have a problem with using opiates you can be referred to our community drug team at Brook Place. You can ask your GP or other health professional to refer you or you can refer yourself by attending the team Monday to Friday or contacting:
