DA (Drugs Action) provides a range of services for people who use drugs and alcohol and their families and friends. We also offer services for those in recovery from drug and alcohol use.

DA has been operating in the North East of Scotland as a provider of specialist drug and alcohol services for nearly thirty years. We employ over fifty staff and have a growing team of volunteers who work across the spectrum of drug and alcohol use to deliver a wide range of services and support packages. They have a positive impact on:

  • Preventing problematic drug and alcohol use
  • Reducing risk and harm to people using drugs or alcohol
  • Supporting people in recovery from drug and alcohol use  
  • Supporting families and friends affected by drug and alcohol use

Our services are delivered across communities in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and include one-to-one and group support for people with drug or alcohol issues. We also support concerned family members, young people and children affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use. You can find out more about our full range of services in the Services Directory.

We also provide training and consultancy to other professionals and communities of interest.

We run a monthly information session for interested professionals who want to know more about DA's services. It takes place at our Hadden Street office between 17.30 - 19.30pm on different days. If you would like to attend a session, please call 01224 577120 to reserve a place.
