There are two main services in Hackney that support families with parents who are substance misusers, as described below.

  1. Hackney Recovery Service (led by Westminster Drug Project, or WDP) provides free treatment to all eligible Hackney residents aged 18 years and over, and includes a parenting programme and other support to improve relationships within affected families.
  2. Young Hackney’s Substance Misuse Service includes experienced treatment workers who can work with the children of parents who misuse substances.

WDP also provides drug and alcohol advice, assessment and treatment for clients (including support for parents) in the City of London.
