What can I do in a crisis?
We do not offer crisis support. If you feel you require immediate support you can contact your local authority crisis team, speak to your GP, call NHS Direct 111 or the emergency services 999. Alternatively, you can call the Samaritans for phone support, their number is 116 123.

Will you try to send me to rehab?
We believe rehab is an option of last resort for those needing medically supervised detox. We will work with you to create a gambling, alcohol or drug treatment programme that you follow in your own familiar surroundings. Research and experience shows this creates the basis for a more successful, long lasting recovery.
