I am very thankful for the service. I feel really cared about.

Your first visit

Coming into our service for the first time might feel a bit daunting, but our friendly team will do their best to help you feel comfortable.

You’ll meet with one of our support workers and talk about your concerns and then make a plan together.

This care plan will help you cut down or stop your drinking or drug use.

It’ll also help us make sure that you’re getting the right support at the right time for you.

We also offer help for the family, friends and carers of the people who use our services.
