Drugs and alcohol

Our Social Services Drug & Alcohol team has the following broad aims:

  • To reduce the harm caused by the misuse of drugs and alcohol.
  • To improve the awareness of issues related to drugs and alcohol.
  • To improve access to services for any individual experiencing problems related to the misuse of drugs and alcohol. 

Many people drink or take drugs, and drinking is of course normal social behaviour. If use of either becomes excessive and interferes with your ability to work or maintain good relationships then you may need help. We offer a service to people who have problems arising from drug and alcohol use and who also:

  • Are requesting residential rehabilitation, or
  • Have learning disabilities
  • Have a diagnosis of mental illness, or
  • Have children who are assessed as being in need, or in need of protection, or
  • Are assessed as posing a risk to others, or
  • Are people who are defined as vulnerable adults, or
  • Have been assessed as requiring community care services.
  • Have issues of domestic abuse 

Anyone requesting this service can expect a comprehensive assessment of his or her issues and needs. If appropriate we may then arrange services to meet these needs. We also provide a direct professional Social Work service and this would include:

  • Advice giving
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Brief Interventions
  • Solution Focussed Therapy
  • Task centred practice
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Person Centred Counselling
  • Relapse prevention
  • Residential Rehabilitation
