Substance use

People experience drug and alcohol dependencies for many reasons…

Coping mechanism for trauma, loss, poor mental health and other difficulties in life can all contribute to substance dependencies.

We provide community-based drug and alcohol, recovery and harm reduction support in Angus, Dundee, Perth and Kinross, and through our homeless services in Edinburgh and Glasgow. 

Anyone can access theses services, including family members.


In 2018 we launched our ODnotMe campaign to raise awareness about the tragic number of drug related deaths in Scotland, in particular Dundee. 90% of drug overdoses are preventable with the use of Naloxone and knowing the signs and symptoms to look out for.
