Information and support
for your alcohol and drug problem
Recovery starts with admitting you have a
problem. You don’t have to wait until you hit rock bottom; you can make a
change at any time. And while there are many effective treatment options, you
don’t necessarily have to seek professional help or go to a rehab program in
order to get better. There are many things you can do to help yourself and
achieve lasting recovery.
There is a range of support available in North
Ayrshire and these are split in three ways:
- Funded alcohol and drug
recovery support services
- Community based recovery
- Wider support services
It can sometimes be difficult to try and decide
which one of the services or support is best for you. If you choose to contact
one of the funded alcohol and drug recovery support services they will ask you
to meet with them so that they can carry out an assessment. If they are the
service that can offer you the best support you will be given a key worker. If
their service isn’t the best for you at that time they will refer you to
another service which is more able to give you the support you want.
Many people find fellowships and mutual aid key
to their recovery; it is your choice to go along and to make the decision as to
whether this type of support is best for you.
You can use all of the types of support at the
same time to try and get the support that is right for you. Each service has a
different way for you to access them. You can find out more about each of these
types of support, including how to access them by clicking on the pages on the
