Addictions services

Addiction services provide a range of services to people with addictions that aim to prevent and treat substance misuse and improve community safety.

Most of the treatments available are based within the local community. This means that our services support people within their own environment. This helps people cope more effectively in everyday life so that they are more able to reduce their dependency on drugs or alcohol and associated problems.


Our Trust is one of four partners jointly responsible for the delivery of drug and alcohol services for Solihull residents through Solihull Integrated Addiction Service (SIAS). Our partners in Solihull are Aquarius, Welcome and Changes UK.  For more information about addictions services in Solihull and how to access them, visit the SIAS website by clicking here.
