A better Medway

There are services available that can help people who misuse drugs and/or alcohol.

We provide two services that offer support, from medical intervention, including counselling and medication, to services that help integrate people back into communities. We also have online interventions to support you at home.  

Turning Point

Turning Point workers support people who have problematic substance misuse.

They can help people manage addiction through medication as they work towards freedom from addiction. Counselling and group work are available to deal with the emotional and life issues that trigger substance misuse. This is the beginning of a journey, not the end.

Open Road

Open Road offer a wellbeing and recovery service to support those looking to stay substance free, develop a new set of skills and no longer be defined by their substance taking.

Training is available to help people gain volunteering and employment experience. Opportunities are available to support those who are currently accessing treatment services to demonstrate what life can look like when substance free.
