Service Description

You can self refer to a Gateway Clinic and drop in at any of the times above. When you arrive, an initial assessment of your needs will be carried out to develop a recovery plan with you. Individuals will be seen on a first-come, first seen basis, and it is important that you attend sober enough to be assessed. Please note that no prescription will be given at this first appointment.

You will then be referred on to an appropriate service, where you will be allocated a worker who will work with you to provide ongoing support. This worker will link you to other services that you can use, ensure there are regular reviews to assess your progress and support your motivation to achieve recovery.
