What we do

At ICADS we recognise that recovery is specific to each individual. We deliver a range of tailored interventions and activities to support ongoing recovery from drug use, improve mental health and general wellbeing.

We work with people who are using any type of drugs, including:

  • opiates (e.g. heroin, codeine);
  • stimulants (e.g. crack, cocaine powder, mephedrone);
  • cannabis;
  • new psychoactive drugs (e.g. spice); and
  • club drugs (e.g. GHB/GBL).

Our services are designed to support individuals with varying needs. This includes:

  • people requiring short interventions for non-dependent drug use,
  • those who work and need to be seen at weekends or evenings,
  • dependent drug users in need of prescribing or access to residential treatment
  • individuals with complex mental or physical health needs
  • specialist services for individuals who are seeking training, volunteering and employment opportunities
  • aftercare support for those who complete treatment.

ICADS has a large team of Recovery Coordinators who are responsive to the needs of service users and can provide advice and guidance around recovery activities available. Peer mentors are also available for advice, support and escorts to and from detox and rehab as well as other potentially challenging appointments such as a first time visit to a mutual aid group.


At ICADS we believe that everyone has the potential to change and will work with you to help you to regain control of your life, tackle your problems and reach your goals.
