Drug and Alcohol support in Knowsley

by Gemma Melling

If you, or someone you know, has a problem with alcohol or drugs, there is a range of help and support available.

Your GP is a good place to start. They can discuss your problems and then advise on the best course of action, including referral to specialist services.

You can also contact local drug and alcohol support services directly either online or over the phone initially with a view to discussing your needs and then arranging a face-to-face appointment.
