The Royal Borough’s alcohol and drug service for adults has been formally relaunched following a new partnership.

Resilience, the new name for the community alcohol and drug service, was officially opened by the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Cllr John Lenton on Thursday 25 May.

The event, at the Resilience alcohol and drug service in Reform Road, Maidenhead, included stalls from a number of local organisations who work to support those with alcohol and drug problems; including the partners the council has recently signed contracts with – Cranstoun and the Claremont and Holyport Practice.

The main changes include extended opening hours for the service in Maidenhead and a new prescribing service for the Windsor area.

Other services include:

Substance misuse advice, information and treatment
Substitute prescribing for opiate users
A range of group activities
Needle exchange and blood borne virus screening and vaccinations
Detox for alcohol clients.
 
Cllr John Lenton, Mayor of the Royal Borough, said: “I enjoyed formally marking the opening of the new Resilience service and learning more about the very important and valuable work it can do to help vulnerable residents in our community.”

Cranstoun, a well established organisation in this field, won the tender for the community alcohol and drug service, now named Resilience. The Claremont and Holyport Practice will continue to run the prescribing service.

Both contracts started last month and will last for up to five years. To discuss alcohol or drug problems call Resilience on 01628 796733.

The new contracts only cover services for adults. The borough’s provision for young people is delivered directly by the council through the youth service team.
