Help for alcohol and drug use

We’re here to help you to address your drug or alcohol use. The service referral criteria is deliberately wide to allow people easy access to support. We work will people at their point of need and keeps expectations of engagement realistic.

This service will mainly support individuals living with severe and problematic drug and alcohol addiction.

Those wishing to engage don’t necessarily have to want to change their drug/alcohol use at the time they work with this service, and may only be seeking support around other issues such as housing, benefits, or health and wellbeing.

Low Threshold takes a harm reduction approach to helping people. This means using an approach that utilises knowledge, skills, advice and supports that will reduce the harm the person is doing to themselves, or others, through their drug and/or alcohol use.

Are you drinking too much?

Many people don’t always know how much alcohol they drink and whether their drinking could have any impact on their health.

Our alcohol self-assessment can help you identify if the amount you drink could be putting your health at serious risk.
