AddactionAddaction is a major national drug and alcohol treatment charity in the United Kingdom. We aim to ensure that all drug and alcohol users can access appropriate treatment, regardless of what stage their substance use has reached.
We help people who are affected by drug use, and help to prevent the downward spiral of addiction before it is too late.
We tackle substance misuse in four main ways:
- Developing specialist services for young people
- Providing accessible community-based projects which respond directly to the wide range of each community's needs
- Reducing drug-related crime through work with offenders on probation or parole and prison-based projects
- Providing a national education programme including our free booklet the Parents Guide to Drugs
