New home for Southampton’s Drug and Alcohol Service for Adults

Southampton's drug and alcohol service reopened its doors at a new address on Wednesday, 12 February 2020

Drug and alcohol service

The service, commissioned by Southampton City Council for Change Grow Live (CGL), has moved to a new building at 50-52 London Road, Southampton SO152AH, which has been designed to provide a psychologically informed environment to support recovery. The service supports local people with drug and alcohol problems to reduce harm and overcome their issues through health interventions and psychological support, individual and group programmes and help with finding education, training, and employment opportunities.

Councillor Peter Baillie, the Mayor of Southampton, formally opened the new service by cutting a ribbon. He was also photographed having a dry blood spot test (which is used to test for blood borne viruses such as hepatitis C), as part of Change Grow Live’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C.

Cllr Dave Shields, Cabinet Member for Healthier and Safer City, said: “I’m very pleased that our partner in rehabilitation services, Change Grow Live, now has a top-notch location and offices to match its level of assistance to clients. We’re taking a very forward-thinking approach to drugs in Southampton and working with CGL is an integral part of that.
