Addiction and Recovery Advice

Local drug and alcohol services can be found by contacting your Local Authority – an Internet search is often a good place to start.

Please see the Yeldall Resource Sheet for details of other Christian rehabilitation centres (some of which take women or do not require funding) and information and advice lines for people concerned about their own or someone else’s addiction issues.
