AddAction is a major national drug and alcohol treatment charity in the United Kingdom.
We aim to ensure that all drug and alcohol users can access appropriate treatment, regardless of what stage their substance use has reached.
We help people who are affected by drug use, and help to prevent the downward spiral of addiction before it is too late.
We tackle substance misuse in 3 main ways:
1. Developing specialist services for young people
2. Providing accessible community based projects which respond directly to the wide range of each communitys needs
3. Reducing drug-related crime through work with offenders on probation or parole and prison-based projects.
We fund raise to pilot and implement pioneering services. We lobby government to foster a more effective use of funds and to adopt more innovative practices. We train volunteers who have recovered from drug and alcohol use with the view to them gaining employment in the drug field. And we encourage a positive approach to drug and alcohol treatment by all in society.
