Protecting the health and wellbeing of our clients and colleagues is our most important concern during this outbreak of COVID-19. Our CHART Navigators will be working from home more over the coming weeks and will not be able to have any face-to-face appointments as they would usually. However, we will continue to support clients, and your Navigator will look to arrange more regular telephone contact with you to help support you through this. As a client, you will still be able to contact your Navigator on their mobile phones and can also contact the CHART Kirklees office bases in either Huddersfield (01484 353333) or Dewsbury (01924 438383). For those who need prescriptions, the service will continue to ensure you are receiving your medication and where other needs are identified, we are able to signpost you to the support required.
Community Links works with CHART Kirklees to offer a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for adults in Kirklees (Huddersfield and Dewsbury).
There is a range of treatment, recovery and support services for those who have concerns about their drug or alcohol use, as well as support and advice to family members and concerned others.
We have a common goal to support service users to achieve and maintain their own recovery. We believe that any individual can change the direction of their life and recovery is possible for everyone.
Within CHART Kirklees there is also provision for support in GP surgeries, Pharmacies (including needle exchanges), Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and Dewsbury District Hospital, Huddersfield Police Station and Kirklees Courts.
CGL leads the CHART Kirklees service, which is provided in partnership with the following organisations: CGL (Main lead provider), Locala CIC and The Basement Recovery Project.
CHART Kirklees provides:
• Advice, guidance and support to safely reduce or give up using drugs and/or alcohol
• Group recovery programmes and help to access mutual aid
• One-to-one key working and specialist counselling
• Needle exchange and harm reduction advice
• Blood borne virus screening
• Signposting and referrals on to specialist services
The service is open to anyone in Kirklees, aged over 18 who would like to work around their alcohol use and require support to do so in their own home.
The service operates: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9.30am – 5pm and Tuesdays 1pm – 7pm.
Appointments can be arranged outside of these times to meet individual need as agreed in advance with the service manager.
We always welcome new clients, so please get in touch if you are interested in getting help from the service or you’d just like to ask some questions. Feel free to bring someone with you on your first visit. If you would like to refer yourself or someone else to the service you can call, email or visit the service in person. We are based at 12 Station Street, Huddersfield and 3 Wellington Street, Dewsbury.
You can call us on 01484 353333 / 01924 438383 or email us on Kirklees.firstname.lastname@example.org.
