Antidote helpline: Contact us to discuss your drug or alcohol issues on 020 7833 1674 (10am-6pm, Monday to Friday). Ask for someone from the Antidote Team.
Though drugs and alcohol may be fun and manageable for some, others may find it dominating their social life or leading to chaotic sexual encounters, isolation, unmanageable comedowns, wasting money, missing work or upsetting family or partners.
We offer harm-reduction information and provide face-to-face support to help you make informed choices about your drug or alcohol use. We can work with you whether you want to stop completely, or achieve greater control over your use.
We work in partnership with the NHS and other services to make referrals for detox or rehab, or to sexual health, mental health, or other specialised support. Accessing support is easy. Listed below are the details of how you can meet with our team. All of our services are free and your confidentiality is paramount.
