What we offer
Addaction Dundee is a direct access service providing support to people in Dundee affected by drug or alcohol use. You can come along and speak to a staff member, for yourself or on someone's behalf.
On arrival you will be met by one of our team who will explain the services we offer. We are a recovery focussed service which believes that everyone can find their own recovery journey. We are here to support people and families in Dundee. We work alongside our partner agencies to provide a package of support and choice to fit individual needs. We agree goals with our clients and make individual recovery plans, which are regularly reviewed. We have a strong group of active volunteers supporting our project, who bring a wealth of life experience to the team. We believe that sharing experience and recovery is a very strong force that adds strength to people's recovery journeys.
Most of our work is one-to-one, and people meet the same worker throughout their time with Addaction. By working with you in your local area, we are developing strong links with your local recovery community and identifying opportunities to get involved in activities and groups that will support you in your recovery.
