Kingston Wellbeing Services provides help for people experiencing anxiety and depression, with or without a drug and/or alcohol problem, and people whose main problem is with their drug and/or alcohol use. The service is available to local residents aged 18 and over.
Although many people with anxiety and/or depression do not have a problem with drug and/or alcohol use, the two often appear together because people use drink or drugs to improve their mood or way of coping with life.
We provide community treatment options for anxiety and depression, and treatment for dependence on alcohol and a range of drugs (heroin, cocaine, stimulants, cannabis, benzodiazepines, “club drugs” etc). Our services are renowned for being high quality, run by highly skilled professionals and for achieving excellent outcomes.
Our treatments are evidence-based and follow the latest national guidelines. We are registered with the Care Quality Commission. Our staff teams are highly skilled and we have nationally recognised experts and a programme in psychological ”talking therapies”.
If you or someone you know has anxiety or depression, or problems with drink or drug use, then we can help.
