Our comprehensive substance misuse services help to support local people to live addiction free lives. We work with each person to develop a personal recovery plan built around their individual circumstances and needs. We also aim to reduce the harm caused by addiction to individuals, families and communities.
County Durham Drug and Alcohol Services offer ways for local people with drug and alcohol problems to become free from their dependence. We also want to reduce the problems that substance misuse causes to families, friendships, workplaces and communities in County Durham.
The service is overseen by Durham County Council in partnership with a range of health, mental health, adult, children and young people’s social care, criminal justice agencies, voluntary and community sector services.
