How we can help you

We can help you stop drinking or using drugs and stay safe and healthy.

You can have one-to-one or group support. You can also get tested for blood-borne viruses like HIV and hepatitis C and get a free naloxone kit. Naloxone can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. 

We offer a free needle exchange service and we are part of the C-Card scheme, providing free condoms. 

Contact us

You can call us on 0131 453 9406

We are open Monday - Friday: 09:00 - 16:30.

If you are coming to the service for the first time, we have a drop in service on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 13:00 - 16:00. This means you can just turn up, you don't need an appointment.
