The Alcohol & Drug Service works in partnership to support people affected by substance misuse to make positive change

Thousands of people from every walk of life struggle with alcohol or drug misuse in our region. The social, health, employment and economic costs of these addictions are high – not just for the individuals, but also their families, communities and the NHS. Breaking the cycle can seem almost impossible for an addict. But we know how to help. This is why The Alcohol & Drug Service is here.

For over 30 years, we have delivered effective interventions in towns and cities. We’ve helped thousands of local people on the road to recovery, across Humberside, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, as we help the national strategy on a local basis.

The Alcohol & Drug Service is a charity (Registered Charity 1108595; and a Company Limited by Guarantee,  Company No. 05375809). The majority of our funding comes through contracts with  statutory commissioners such as Local Authorities and the NHS, but we receive valuable  income from charitable grants and individual fundraising efforts which supports many of  our most innovative services. We are governed by a Board of Trustees.

We ensure that the organisation is run well and we are a part of the Investors in People scheme, a quality framework which is independently audited. We currently hold the Silver award.

But, even though we’ve been transforming the lives of people affected by drugs or alcohol misuse for over 30 years, some people may not have heard of us. This is because we always work in partnership – and often deliver our services and projects which have their own names/identities.
