Help and Services

The first step to getting help is recognising that you need it in the first place. Some of the signs that your drug use is getting out of hand might be:

  • constantly thinking about drugs or having a strong desire to use (craving)
  • using more now than when you first started
  • spending too much time or money on drugs
  • getting into debt because of drugs
  • drugs becoming more important to you than other things (family, friends, appearance etc.)
  • difficulty controlling your using
  • continuing to use drugs despite it causing you some form of harm (health, legal, social or financial)

Speak to one our friendly staff if you think you may need help by calling us on 01274 723863 or by dropping in at one of our centres. It’s a big step and we recognise it can be scary and daunting to ask for help. Our staff are warm and welcoming and completely non judgemental. They can help you by outlining your options and making an appointment, there’s no pressure and all our services are free. Our purpose is to help you decide what you would like to change and to support you in achieving your goals.
