Outreach

We're eager to reach out to all of society, including those who are often overlooked such as street drinkers, sex workers, and people in crisis.

Staying out of prison, off the drugs and in college is the way forward. I’ve got a long way to go but I’m on the right track.

Accident & Emergency

Our A&E based services enable us to provide this kind of early intervention, helping people when they most need it.

We've carefully designed our hospital and A&E-based services around local needs, to create responsive, engaging and accessible drug and alcohol services that make an immediate difference.

Needle Exchange

Since the 1980s our needle exchange services have provided a safe environment for people with drug problems to get effective advice and support - without being judged. We now have 20 needle exchange services across England and Wales.

Here you can access prescribing services run by police and community workers who can offer guidance and encouragement. We also offer support groups and advice on harm reduction. Above all, our focus is on your needs and helping you stay healthy.

Our needle exchange services offer:

  • Information and advice on safer injecting
  • Advice on preventing the transmission of blood-borne viruses
  • Access to other treatment and support services to address drug problems and help you recover.
