New drug and alcohol support service

Adults can now get advice and support about alcohol or drug misuse from the Brighton & Hove Recovery Service. They also offer support to families and carers of those struggling with alcohol or drug misuse. 

The service will include:

  • Advice on keeping safe
  • Access to substitute medication
  • Community detox
  • Referrals to residential detox and residential rehab
  • Emotional support and counselling
  • Access to community groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous
  • Housing support
  • Education, training and employment advice
  • Community outreach 
  • Health promotion 

If you're already attending a service in the area, they are working with current staff and GPs, pharmacies and hospitals to ensure your treatment isn't disrupted.

Please contact the team on 01273 731900 or email if you want to talk about your treatment as your key worker's phone number may have changed.

Changes to the service due to COVID-19

While the new service will be in place from 1 April, face-to-face services will not be in place until restrictions on social distancing are lifted.

Appointments and support will be provided on the phone or by their online team.
