How we help

If you are worried about your own substance use or someone else's, we're here to listen. We won't judge.

Once you've given us a call, we will try and see you within the next five days at a place that is convenient for you. You can come alone or with someone else.

After an initial chat, you can discuss whether you would like more regular appointments. You will usually see the person that you contact, but if you would like to change your worker just ask, and we will try and arrange something. We won't be offended.
