They run several clinics around Nottingham City including at locations in Clifton, Bulwell and Cripps.
They also work with other professionals to provide advice and guidance, offering IBA (Identification and Brief Advice) training to increase staff confidence when discussing substance use with clients.
The team is active in the community, regularly attending wellbeing days, events and health promotion meetings.
Increasing awareness and education with the public and other professionals is an important part of their community involvement work, along with offering information and advice to support the residents of Nottingham City.
