Addaction (Barking & Dagenham Horizon)

AddAction (Barking & Dagenham Horizon) provides a range of services to support people aged 18 and over, with alcohol & drugs addiction, into recovery by tackling both treatment needs and wider social reintegration issues, including housing, employment and education.

By addressing the wider holistic needs of our service users, we ensure that our substance misuse services make the best use of local community resources.

    • Intensive key working
