Veteran’s Independence from Problematic Substances

BDP’s Veteran’s Independence from Problematic Substances (VIPS) is a confidential service supporting veteran’s from the British Armed Forces accessing support for alcohol and other drug use they felt has become problematic. Launched in January 2019, the service is supported by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the Royal British Legion.

VIPS provides 1-to-1 sessions and access to a weekly group with other veterans who are also seeking to make or maintain changes to their alcohol and or drug use if this is appropriate for their individual needs. The group can be accessed alongside or following 1-to-1 sessions for ongoing support.

To contact VIPS directly please email vips@bdp.org.uk or access support via the button below.
