How we can help

We work with people who use heroin, methadone and other prescribed opiates such as tramadol and codeine to tackle their substance use. We're here to help you become happier and healthier.

Whatever your situation, we’ll tailor the support to your needs. We offer both one-to-one and group sessions. Our service also includes medical treatment. This might include substitute prescribing or medication that helps to prevent you from relapsing.
