Alcohol and Drug Service

The Alcohol and Drug Service provides outpatient assessment and treatment services for client with alcohol and/or drug misuse, or people affected by another's alcohol and/or drug addiction.

The counsellors work closely with the Adult Mental Health teams regarding the assessment and treatment of clients with a co-existing psychiatric disorder.

The service offers early intervention/screening services, assessment and access to intensive residential programmes, (including clients under the Alcohol and Drug Act), and a regional opioid programme in collaboration with a network of General Practitioners and pharmacies. We have established a community based detoxification programme.

Consumer forums

Our Consumer Forums are open to anyone - clients of the Alcohol and Drug service, people who may benefit by our service, or their family or partners.

This is a "come and have your say" forum- a consumer advisory group for our service, where consumers tell us what they need and can have their say on how to improve the quality of alcohol and drug service.
