Do you or someone you know have problems with alcohol or drugs? We can help.
Our Community Addiction Teams can arrange for you to see a health professional who can best help you, eg an Addiction Worker or Addiction Nurse.
They will talk to you about the best way you can receive help to tackle your addiction and arrange your care for you.
Information on services provided by the Community Addiction Teams is available from Glasgow Addiction Services.
Or you might also want to look at the alcohol and drugs section of our site (you can also click on the links on the lefthand side).
Do I need help?
You may wish to contact your GP, local Community Addiction team or other helping agency if:
* You feel you are regularly drinking to get drunk or using drugs regularly
* You are beginning to think about some of the problems in your life that might be linked to your drinking or drug habit
* You are experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking or using (eg the shakes, sweats, anxiety, paranoia etc)
* You are self-medicating (using alcohol or other drugs to cope with pain, to sleep or to cope with your problems)
How do I access services?
It's easy to access our services. Simply phone the number provided or pop into the local office. Click here for alcohol and here for drugs. You can also be referred to the addiction services by a health or social care worker, or your GP. A member of your family or a friend can also make an appointment on your behalf.
You can access services during office hours and also in the evening if you request it. Sometimes we will need a bit of notice of evening appointments so we can set them up for you.
We will always speak to you about what is involved in your care and ensure you are involved in making decisions about it. To ensure you receive the best possible care we will ask you to allow us to share information with a range of other professionals as appropriate. We will usually ask you to sign a consent form.
