About us

Substances involved in addiction may include alcohol, illicit drugs, prescribed or over-the-counter medication, and volatile solvents.

There are a range of treatment options, from advice and information, to psychological and pharmacological treatments. Treatment may include drug substitution or detoxification regimes.

Patient needs may involve wider healthcare professionals such as GPs, hospital-based specialists in liver disease, HIV, and mental health teams, etc. We also work with other professionals and disciplines to address social, housing and employment problems.
