Where to go for online support

With You is here to support you face to face, over the phone and online, whether you want to stop drinking or using drugs, or just cut down.

There are also plenty of other sources of online support, community and advice that you may find helpful.

Join an online community or support group

These online communities can offer a listening ear, a friendly chat and practical advice, wherever you are.

Breaking Free Online

You can also get a year’s free access to Breaking Free Online, a comprehensive digital treatment and recovery programme.

You’ll need an online referral before you can get started, so speak to our webchat team who will help you get access.
