Counselling Service (Crew)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

  • People aged 18 years old and concerned about their or other’s drug use

Who provides this?

  • Crew

Description

Crew provides up to 30 free counselling sessions for people concerned about their stimulant and other drug use ( such as cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy or amphetamines).

Crew’s counselling is person-centred, which means that the counsellors work with what feels important to you. This might mean looking directly at your drug-taking or by exploring more about underlying issues or things from your past.

Crew can also offer short-term counselling of six weekly sessions for people affected by another’s drug use, for example, a partner, a friend or a family member. If you are in this position, Crew can signpost you onto longer-term support.

You can find out how Crew has adapted its services due to COVID-19 here – www.crew.scot/services-covid19
