Drug and Alcohol Services

In Islington, treatment for adult drug and alcohol users and support for their families and affected others is provided by Better Lives. Better Lives integrated drug and alcohol services are delivered by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Blenheim and WDP.

Drug and alcohol users and their families can directly access information, advice, assessment and a comprehensive range of treatments.

Drug and alcohol recovery services in Islington are currently delivered from three main bases. To request assessment at any service, or for any other queries please call one of the numbers below.  Services are working hard to ensure that their premises are Covid-safe.  Whilst they offer a drop in, it is recommended that whenever possible you telephone to arrange a time to attend.
