Help for people over 18
Norfolk has a wide variety of drug treatment agencies around the county. Most of these treatment services offer an open-access policy, which means that you can contact them directly and they will arrange an appointment with you. Some agencies offer a drop-in service where you can access a duty worker at set times without an appointment.
If you need help, you can call the Matthew Project free helpline on 0800 764 754 to talk to someone in confidence 24 hours a day.
