ADAPT is the main drug and alcohol triage service in Fife. It provides assessment of need and referral to specialist drug and alcohol services within the NHS and Third Sector.

ADAPT also provides information, advice and brief help for alcohol and/or drug use. Anyone requiring more intensive help can be guided and supported towards ADAPT counselling and other services. We also provide advice and counselling for carers of people suffering from substance misuse.

Our About and How it works sections will give you more information.

Call our Helpline on 01592 321321 to speak to one of our Support Workers.

Our Support Workers are also available in drop-in Clinics. You can find a Clinic in the Locations section.

“The worker was honest, upfront, open and was not patronising or condemning. He listened and gave me some advice.”

“The worker has a very quiet, caring, calm manner and she helped me feel that my concerns and worries were not insurmountable and that there was light at the end of the tunnel!”

“It was beneficial to have a professional person to help deal with on-going difficulties and to explain the problems of dealing with addiction in a partner” …. “The service that you provide helped build family relationships again and I am very grateful for this second chance”

ADAPT aims to help people affected by drug and alcohol-related problems improve their quality of life.

We do so by offering equitable and accessible services throughout Fife, delivered to the highest standards of professional quality.

We offer services that provide information, education and early interventions that help prevent problems.

We offer counselling and referral to specialist services that support recovery from substance-related problems for individuals and families.

We keep in in touch with clients to check they are getting the help they really need.

All our services are delivered in line with the Scottish Government’s ‘The Quality Principles: Standard Expectations of Care and Support in Drug and Alcohol Services’.
