Updates to the service:

What to expect

When you come to one of the clinics for the first time, a member of the team will ask you about your current challenges around drinking or drugs and create a recovery support plan with you. They will then arrange for you to have a key worker who can help you complete a full assessment.

You will see a nurse, counsellor or addiction worker. You can go along to any of the clinics and you don't need an appointment.
