The Drug and Alcohol Team is a specialist service that will support you to deal with an alcohol or substance misuse problem. Through your personal recovery journey, we will work with you, your family, your employer and any other important people in your community to help you make the positive changes you want in your life. Should you need help to keep your job or find new work, the Team can help you directly, or bring in Employability Network partners such as Housing, or the Welfare Rights Team to assist with any issues that need to be tackled before you enter the employment market.
We are keen to support both you and your employer if you are in work, or new to a job.
