Our services

The services are split into several smaller teams including:

  • Secondary Care Alcohol Team
  • Criminal Justice System Team

These teams are connected closely together so that service users can access the appropriate treatment for them to meet their needs at any particular point in time and to support them in their journey through recovery.

Criteria/referral process

We provide services for adults between the ages of 18 – 65 (although there are those in contact with us who are 65 and require ongoing input and will continue to receive this).

We operate an open access referral system.  Service users are encouraged to make contact via the single point of contact telephone number (01709 447210) to arrange an assessment.

Alternatively third parties, including GPs and social workers can make referrals to the single point of contact but are expected to provide appropriate information such as date of birth, contact details, drug/substance of choice and any safeguarding concerns/risks.
