The Service

Who is the service for?

The service is for anyone who wants help with an alcohol or drugs problem. We also offer support to families and those people looking after someone who might be having problems with alcohol or drugs.

The service that we offer is for people aged 19 and over living in Wigan or Leigh.

If you are under 19 and need help we have a specialist service that works just with young people.

What do we need from you?

To help you we need to talk to you about your drinking or drug use. So if you phone us or call in at the service we need you to be clear headed. You must be able to answer our questions. That way we can get you the help you need. You can bring someone with you.
