Down the Lane with ADAPT

Dave Dempster, Substance Misuse Manager recently took part in the Down the Lane podcast produced by the Linton Lane Centre in Kirkcaldy. Dave talked about about our ADAPT service, which he manages, and explained how it supports people in Fife with Drug and Alcohol problems. Also, their partners and other family members.

Dave talked about ADAPT as the primary Triage service in Fife for drug and alcohol issues. He explained that drug problems or alcohol problems are often linked to other difficulties experienced in life and these need to be taken into account if we are to help people with care and attention. His staff and volunteers are trained to assess people's needs and find the right services within the NHS, Fife Council and among Voluntary Organisations. ADAPT supports people through the whole process of entering and engaging with these services.

Dave also spoke about the latest service to commence in ADAPT. Acudetox helps treat addiction, stress, anxiety and low mood. Similar to acupuncture, Acudetox also known as Auricular or ear acupuncture helps relieve these symptoms. The service is available by appointment in the Linton Lane Centre and in venues in Glenrothes.

If you're looking for Acudetox or otherwise need help with a drug or alcohol issue why not call ADAPT on 01592 321321. They really can help.
