Drug and alcohol misuse

The Hackney recovery service offers high quality drug and alcohol support and treatment free to all Hackney residents. It’s delivered by a partnership of experienced providers and helps reduce the harm caused to individuals, their families, carers and communities by substance misuse.

If you need advice and information about a drug or alcohol issue that’s affecting you, a family member, a friend or someone you care for, it can provide the help and support you need. Experienced professionals can recommend the best treatment option and let you know if you could benefit by attending one-to-one support.
