Drug and alcohol services to change

Drug and alcohol services in Doncaster are set to provide a better service after they are integrated in the New Year.

The new service, known as Doncaster Drug and Alcohol Service (DDAS), will come into affect on January 7.

DDAS will be delivered as a partnership between Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) and Doncaster Alcohol Services (DAS).

The new integrated service will help Doncaster people who need information, support or treatment with their substance or alcohol misuse.

RDaSH service manager Paula Brocklesby said: “The integrated service will improve access and availability to the people of Doncaster, and aims to educate people about effects and dangers of drugs and alcohol.

“Having services at one venue, Rosslyn House, will improve access, and communication to improve service users’ experience.”
