Address :
Whitburn Health Centre Weavers Lane Whitburn

Post Code :
EH47 0SD

When clients come to a drop‐in we will listen to their problems and talk about ways we can help. If they want further help we will arrange a key worker for them from one of the three teams who can complete a full assessment with them and agree a plan. Clients should come sober or straight enough to talk about their problems.

We do not start prescribing medication at drop‐ins.  If for any reason they can’t attend one of the drop‐ins they can self‐refer by telephone and arrange a more suitable meeting.
