Treatment and support services

This section gives information on drug and alcohol treatment and support services available across Northern Ireland. There are a wide range of services available from short term extended brief interventions to more longer term community based or residential based one to one therapeutic treatment services. There are also services which offer ongoing recovery focussed group support, services which offer advice and support for your wider needs such as housing and ‘low threshold’ services specifically set up for those not yet ready or able to engage with mainstream or longer term treatment services.

Drug and alcohol services operate within a ‘Tiered Model’ and before searching for a service it might be useful to click here and learn more about what type of help and support is available at each ‘Tier.’ This may help you to better understand which level of support you might need or prefer and to better fine-tune your search options or to filter your results.

It focuses not just on people with Cocaine addictions ( as the name would suggest) but on people with addictions to any mind altering substance (including alcohol)

CA is a 40 year old fellowship and is very well established in the US and mainland UK. It is also well established in the Republic of Ireland (around 70 meetings per week) but it is relatively new in Northern Ireland.
