Counselling Service (Crew)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

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

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.
