Get help

Find out how we can help you, a friend or family member

EDP is a free, confidential and friendly service which helps people cut down or cut out drugs and alcohol and get their lives back on track.

  • We have hubs and other smaller pop up centres across Devon and Dorset.
  • We provide safe spaces and confidential environments to talk.
  • Our staff and peer supporters are friendly and ready to listen.
  • Our experiences and trained workforce of staff and volunteers will not judge you.

Self help

We know that some people may not want to refer into service so we have produced a range of resources, blogs and case studies that provide further information which may help you as you come to terms with your own or a friend/family member’s substance use. If you are worried that you cannot keep yourself safe or you are concerned about someone else’s safety, please visit our emergency page for help in deciding what to do.
