LGBT Drug and Alcohol Support

Worried about your drug or alcohol use?

We can help – whether you (or someone you know) wants to quit, are thinking of cutting down, or if you’d just like some support or advice about playing more safely.


Antidote is the UK’s only LGB&T run and targeted drug and alcohol support service. Set up over 10 years ago, we work with both drug and alcohol users and healthcare professionals. We’re here to give non-judgemental free advice and support delivered by highly trained staff and volunteers – all of whom identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender, and who have a good understanding of the pressures and problems that come with recreational drug or alcohol use.

We offer

A structured weekend programme

One-to-one key working to address immediate drug and alcohol support needs

Referral to detox clinics and prescribing centres

Referral to our counselling service

Drop-ins to discuss drug and alcohol issues, sexual health and steroid use issues

A telephone advice helpline

Training and support for healthcare professionals

Women workers are available across the service.
