The Service

WDP Redbridge is an established, integrated community service delivered across several provisions in the Borough. The service consists of both clinical and psychosocial elements and is CQC registered to provide a range of clinical interventions including BBV and health interventions, OST, and community detox, as well as having family and carers and service user involvement provision.

Together we offer a wide range of pharmacological, psychosocial, recovery-orientated, health focused and inpatient interventions that support individuals and their families who wish to receive advice, assessment, and treatment for their drug and/ or alcohol related needs.

WDP Redbridge is an established community service that is well performing and highly functioning. We are a friendly team of professionals who support each other. The service operates Mon- Fri, our core hours 9am to 5pm but there are times where we might need to work occasional evenings or weekends.

Manage on average a caseload of 50 (although we have no upper limit) at various stages of their recovery.
