How do I access drug & alcohol services in Bristol?

Drugs services in Bristol are spread between a handful of different organisations under what is called Bristol ROADS (Recovery Orientated Alcohol and Drugs Service)

To access ROADS services you should contact Developing Health and Independence (DHI)  They will complete an assement then refer you on to the relevent part of ROADS for your circumstances.

If you are trying to access Opiate Substitution Therapy you will need to first speak to your GP about your drug use. You will then be assigned a BDP worker who will manage your prescriptions.
