About us

We aim to offer ways for local people with drug and alcohol problems to become free from their dependence. We also want to reduce the problems that substance misuse causes to families, friendships, workplaces and communities in South Tyneside.

We want to work with each person to develop their potential for recovery. Individuals’ needs will be taken into account as we strive to support positive outcomes.

We work in partnership with a range of health, mental health, adult, children and young people’s social care, criminal justice agencies, voluntary and community sector services.

The service is overseen by South Tyneside Council.

Our service is aligned with the government’s Drugs Strategy
