Drug and alcohol work

People with drug and alcohol problems are far more likely to become homeless than other members of society.

In addition, those who become homeless are at a greatly increased risk of developing drug and alcohol problems as a result of their chaotic lifestyles.

Around 20 per cent of those coming to us for help do so because of drug or alcohol problems

A year ago I would never have imagined that I’d be doing this kind of thing, but I also never imagined myself being stable. I never imagined me controlling my drugs rather than them controlling me, but this place is helping me to do that.

Many rough sleepers, meanwhile, have unresolved drug and alcohol problems which must be treated as a priority before their recovery can begin.  

Framework offers a range of services to help prevent drug and alcohol related homelessness and also to rehabilitate those for whom substance abuse has already cost them their home. 

These include:

  • Floating support
  • Links to external agencies
  • Detoxifications
  • Residential treatment accommodation
