The last few months have been challenging for many people. The Covid-19 pandemic has been the source of much disruption, change and in the worst cases loss for individuals and communities across the world.
We have been forced to lead more socially isolated lives by having to distance ourselves from our families, friends, neighbours and colleagues. There have been restrictions on when we go out, who we go with and where we go. This has been incredibly difficult for some and caused anxiety and stress.
If you are struggling with problematic substance use there could have been further complications such as being unable to source your drug of choice, using different substances as a substitute and/or difficulties in accessing the support you usually receive.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to reduce face-to-face contact with members of the public. We continue to provide Needle Exchange. Currently one-to-one sessions at our agencies are by prior arrangement only. We are also providing support over the telephone and online platforms. Our normal opening times of Monday – Friday: 9am – 5pm are in place.
Please read the leaflets below for advice and guidance to help you through this difficult time.
