Addiction NI

United Kingdom

Addiction NI has been working since 1978 to provide support and treatment to people affected by alcohol or drug addiction. We have an adult service that treats those aged between 18-54 and an older persons service that provides a specialised addiction service for those over 55. We have centres in south, east and west Belfast and treat people from all over Northern Ireland. As a registered charity, we do not charge for treatment sessions. We therefore need donations to ensure that we can continue our work. If you would like to get involved with Addiction NI or you have an initative that may be helpful please get in touch!
