About Addaction Voices
Drugs, alcohol and mental health. Voices from the frontline.
Every year millions of us are affected by problems with mental health, drugs, alcohol and self harm. Most of us know someone affected. One in six have personal experience.
Unfortunately not enough people are getting the help they need.
Addaction Voices explores new thinking around the big challenges affecting our sector and considers how we can deliver better support to more people. We do this by highlighting the perspectives of our people and their experiences on the front line of drugs, alcohol and mental health issues across Britain.
Who are Addaction
We’re a national public health charity. We help hundreds of thousands of people and families to overcome problems with alcohol, drugs, poor mental health, and self-harm. Last year we helped more than 130,000 people in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Our work is based in towns, cities, hospitals, prisons, schools, through outreach in people’s homes, with other local services, and nationally online via web chat and self-help advice.
