Our community drug and alcohol services provide specialist treatment and psychological interventions to support service users in their recovery.

As part of our work, we provide: 

  • comprehensive assessment

  • access to specialist psychological interventions 

We accept: 

  • self-referrals 

  • referrals from GPs
