Alcohol and drug services

Drug and alcohol misuse is a serious and complex issue.

While the number of people affected with a serious problem is relatively small, someone’s substance misuse problem and dependency affects everybody connected with them.

Getting help and support

There are commissioned services in Northamptonshire to support adults, children and young people who are affected by their use of legal and illegal drugs, including alcohol, as well as a designated provider to support families who may be affected by someone’s use of drugs and/or alcohol.
