Self-help

Self-help

If you misuse drugs you should be given information about self-help groups based on a system called the 12-step programme. Examples include Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous. Staff may help you to make contact with these groups if needed.

Questions you might like to ask staff involved in your care

  • What treatment choices do I have?

  • Are there any support organisations in my local area, for example groups for drug users, and advocacy groups?

  • Can you provide any information about services which might help my family and carers, such as self-help groups?

  • Please give me more details about the tests/investigations I should have.
