Referral for Alcohol Counselling

There are essentially 4 referral routes for patients:

1 The patient may telephone FASS on 01592 206200 following advice of GP, Practice Nurse or following an Alcohol Brief Intervention (ABI). Alternatively, the Health Professional may prefer to make this call.

2 The patient is referred to FASS using a FASS Referral Form, a Practice Referral Form or by letter. Please use this method if you need to provide background information about the referral or require liaison with FASS.

A FASS Referral Form in pdf or Word doc format can be downloaded here.

3 The patient is directed to a FASS ADAPT Recovery Clinic for Triage Assessment of Alcohol and/or Drug use. The patient can request referral through to FASS Alcohol Counselling. This is often combined with onward referral to the Addiction Service for Alcohol Detoxification.

For availability of ADAPT Recovery Clinics refer to the ADAPT Locations page here, or telephone 01592 321321

4 The patient may be referred to FASS through FORT (if available to your service). Fife Online Referral & Tracking is used by more than 100 services and agencies.

Upon receipt of referral FASS will contact the patient with information about Alcohol Counselling and details of the first appointment. FASS arranges 99% of appointments within 21 days. Most within 14 days.
