On top of the regular Antidote drop-ins, where you can always show up without an appointment, we also offer more structured support in terms of six weeks of keyworking. Having a keyworker allocated to you requires your commitment to six sessions to help address your goals. There is sometimes a long waiting list for these appointments and a group programme, such as Chemcheck, may be a better option.
As there is a high demand for one-to-one support we will ask you to attend the drop-ins regularly whilst you are waiting to access this. We will be able to provide initial support this way, and it shows us you are committed to the process keyworking requires of you. We will not be able to offer keyworking unless you have shown regular commitment. This usually means that after your initial assessment you would need to attend the drop-in three times in order to go on the waiting list for keyworking.
