Support if you are not yet having treatment for your drug problem

Some treatments may not be suitable for you, depending on your exact circumstances. If you have questions about specific treatments and options, please talk to a member of your healthcare team.

If you are not yet having treatment but you come into contact with healthcare professionals or other staff (for example at a needle exchange, pharmacy or GP surgery), they may offer to talk to you about your drug problem. You should be offered two meetings to discuss your options. At these you should be given non-judgemental information about harm reduction and about problems you may have as a result of your drug use.
