It's not uncommon for people to want to cut down or stop using a substance, but find they're not able to. That's where tailored treatment can really help.

Anglicare’s drug and alcohol treatment service (ADATS) is free. Anyone can contact us directly or be referred through a medical professional.

We use evidence-based assessment and screening tools to determine the severity of use, and work out individual treatment plans. This might be detox, therapeutic counselling, or a short-term intervention such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
