Contact Our Helpline

We are here to support you if you are affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug use. We can chat, offer listening support and information, and link you either into our own services or services local to you.

Call: 08080 10 10 11
Chat on the live help on our website.

We understand that making the first call can be difficult; it may even be the first time you have spoken to another person about what’s going on. Our advisers are here to listen for as long as you need them to. If you are not comfortable speaking over the phone with someone, we also have a helpline email and a webchat service.

If we are not available, you can leave us a voicemail message with your name, phone number and a time that is suitable for us to call. We will only call from the helpline number 08080 10 10 11.

I contacted your helpline in October when I was at my wit’s end with worry about my daughter’s heroin use and my son’s Valium use. I had already lost a son to suicide who wasn’t using drugs and could see my other children going the same way. From the minute I spoke to you I knew I was in the right place to get the help I needed. You gave me information on so many local places where I could go, and I had no idea they were here. Since I first spoke with you, I have spoken with you on the phone another three times and via your webchat (this is a great support when I’m hysterically crying and couldn’t speak to anybody!) You talked me through the tough times. I regularly come back to your website and look through the self-help guides. It’s so easy to navigate my way through. I now know I can pop into the local recovery events. I think the fact that I am calmer has had a positive influence on my kids and they are doing better. I popped online today to have a look around as it feels like home and thought I would send you a thank you for all that you have done for me, and I am sure what you do for families across Scotland. Although things are not perfect, I am happier and less anxious, and that is a true blessing. Thank you.’ – Michelle (name change)
