Addiction Support

On this page you will find information about our Addiction Support, and details about how we can support you, and those you care about, through dependency issues.

About our Addiction Support service

We provide addiction support to individuals experiencing problems with alcohol, drugs, gambling, eating disorders or other types of dependency. This service provides access to fully qualified addiction specialists, and we can facilitate and support access to residential treatment.

The charity has a dedicated addiction support helpline which is strictly confidential. For a pharmacist approaching us for help, specialist support from an addiction counsellor can be provided from their first contact with us, through treatment and into recovery. Treatment may be residential or accessed through local services and where someone is unable to self-fund we can assess the need for help with the costs.

Supporting someone with addiction

For family members and others supporting someone with addiction help is also available through our Addiction Support service.
