How do I make a referral or get some advice?

Referral into drug and alcohol treatment in Torbay is simple. Both services encourage individuals to self-refer, but referrals by professionals are also accepted.

You can complete the Online self-referral form  and a member of the service will contact you.

Alternatively, you can call the service and a member of the Team will complete a brief ‘telephone triage’ assessment with you. Once this is done, you will be referred for Recovery Worker allocation and ongoing support.

Self-refer online or by phone

We provide drug and alcohol services in Torbay only. For the rest of Devon, please contact Together Drug and Alcohol Service.
