  • Assessment of individual needs and development of a care plan in conjunction with the client
  • Substitute prescribing for people who are using opiate drugs such as heroin, to help reduce the harm caused by illicit drug use
  • Regular one-to-one key-working support (weekly/fortnightly/monthly depending on individual needs), providing support in reducing the harm caused by drug use, or help to stop using completely
  • Group support for those who find it helpful to share their experiences and find solutions in a peer group
  • Support with other issues such as finding a GP, housing, children and family problems
  • Complementary therapy (acupuncture and acupressure) to help with relaxation
  • Access to other treatment, including in-patient detox, residential rehab, structured day programmes and counselling. These are all available for people who want to become drug-free.

Clients have regular reviews of their treatment, as circumstances change and people may wish to try different types of treatment.
DASH works closely with other services in Haringey, such as supported housing schemes, aftercare services for people who have completed their treatment, and employment/training schemes.
