How we can help

The Torbay drug and alcohol service is based at Shrublands House in Torquay.

We offer a variety of services:

  • advice
  • information
  • counselling
  • prescribing
  • family therapy
  • groupwork
  • Hepatitis B vaccinations
  • Hepatitis C and HIV testing
  • harm minimisation
  • relapse prevention
  • advocacy and referrals on to other services including residential rehabilitation.

Our service promotes partnership working with the Police, Probation, non-statutory drug service, housing associations and employment agencies. These partnerships have produced a number of schemes aimed at increasing the accessibility of clients to treatment and the numbers of clients in treatment. The schemes include Criminal Justice Integrated Team, Specialist Drug Treatment, Specialist Alcohol Treatment, Tier Four Inpatient and Residential Services.

Referrals can be made by GPs, Criminal Justice agencies or clients themselves.
