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 that you or someone you know is misusing drugs or alcohol you can discuss your concerns with your GP. He or she will be able to assess and advise you on the best service to meet your need, and refer you into treatment.

If you are in urgent need of help we recommend you contact your GP or 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.
