Drugs and alcohol support

Drugs and alcohol misuse is when a person regularly uses drugs or alcohol to change their mood, emotion or state of consciousness.

During 2022/2023, there were 1,809 Tower Hamlets residents in effective treatment. However we know there is still a big proportion of residents not accessing treatment. Whether you are looking for advice or concerned about someone you know – there is help available.

In this section you will find all the contact details you need to get expert advice in the community. These services are all free to anyone living in Tower Hamlets.
