Addaction Drug Intervention Programme (DIP) is commissioned and funded by the Public Health Department and was introduced in order to use the criminal justice system as a means to enable offenders to address their drug use. The programme facilitates treatment and provides a service for all adults either completing a statutory order or engaging on a voluntary basis.
They offer Mutual Aid Groups including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), a weekly art and craft group and a semi-structured 12 week course ‘Momentum’. During summer they also offer weekly fishing trips and some of their recovery workers are trained to deliver NADA 5-Point ACU-DETOX. They also offer a ‘Right Turn’ support group for veterans.
The Addaction DIP is approximately a 5 minute walk from Sheffield train station and is located next door to Sheffield Health and Social Care Non-Opiate Service (START).
They are open Monday – Friday 9-5pm (7pm on Thursdays for late night appointments).
