New Direction is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults aged 18+ (including offenders) and affected others in Lewisham.
Our flexible treatment and support service is provided by a friendly team of recovery coordinators, psychosocial intervention workers, doctors, recovery nurses, complementary therapists, volunteers and peer mentors.
Our drug and alcohol services support adults and young people to understand the risks their drug or alcohol use pose to their health and wellbeing, and support them to reduce or stop their use safely. We deliver safe, high-quality services that provide value for money and exceed performance targets.
Our integrated services address the needs of the whole person and encompass housing, education, training and employment as well as psycho-social and clinical substance misuse treatment. Once stability or abstinence has been achieved, we provide aftercare to help maintain recovery and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
We work with the families and friends of people affected by drug or alcohol use to help develop and maintain strong, loving and stable relationships critical to successful recovery. We also prioritise the safeguarding of children and vulnerable family members affected by the substance use of a family member.
We provide specialist support for alcohol, all illegal drugs, New Psychoactive Substance (NPS), prescription and over the counter (OTC) medication and steroids.
