Summary:
**Due to COVID treatment is being offered remotely where possible**

The Bexley Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) Service is part of the Addiction service based at Erith Health Centre. We provide specialist assessment, treatment and care for people, aged over 18, who misuse drugs.

We care for people who live in the London Borough of Bexley.

We provide specialist assessment, treatment and care for people, aged over 18, who are referred through the courts on a DRR Order.

A DRR service provides offenders with fast access to drug treatment programmes where their criminal behaviour is associated with drug misuse. The aim of a DDR is to reduce drug-related offending.

We care for people who live in the London Borough of Bexley, and for people in the borough who are homeless, of no fixed abode, and claiming social care benefits.

Our treatment programmes include rehabilitation, counselling and prescribing alternatives to drugs. We also provide advice and support on housing, relationships, employment and education.

We work with other teams in health and social care to help people to maintain their health and their independence.
