Are you affected by drug or alcohol use, need support or
Kent drug services are here to help you.

What to expect when accessing treatment services.
If you feel that you or someone you know needs
support or treatment for their drug or alcohol misuse then a good
place to start is in your GP surgery, or call your local specialist
drug service directly.
The majority of people engaging
with services have self-referred for treatment.
If you haven't accessed treatment
before in the last few months your first appointment will be to
access the level of treatment you require.
Once you have been assessed for treatment,
you'll meet your keyworker. They may be a doctor, nurse or a drugs
worker. Your keyworker will help you organise treatment, develop a
personalised care plan with you, and be your first point of call
throughout your treatment. You’ll see your keyworker for regular
one-to-one sessions during your treatment.
