Apr 29 2020

Inclusion Recovery Hampshire offers free and confidential services for adults who are using or affected by problems associated with alcohol and drugs, as well as for family or friends who may be worried about someone. You can ask for help using the online referral form or call 0300 124 0103.

Councillor Judith Grajewski, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Public Health, said: “We know that those who are dependent on alcohol and drugs may be more vulnerable to the impact of Covid-19 due to underlying health conditions.  We are committed to helping those who need access to treatment and Inclusion Recovery Hampshire, our commissioned service, is now providing this via telephone support, video links and tailored advice.”

Face to face meetings and group sessions which play an important role in an individual’s recovery are continuing via a digital platform. The service is also working to make sure that those who need alcohol and drug services and their families are kept safe and supported whilst social distancing restrictions are in place.

There is also support available for anyone affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug use through a 24 hour family and carer support line, call 023 8039 9764.
