We aim to provide a 4 to 6 weeks residential service for individuals who are no longer managing their support within a community setting.

Our team of social care, nursing and medical staff will provide treatment and support to individuals who are deemed to be engaging in high risk drug and/or alcohol use with complex needs. Collaboratively working within a Recovery Orientated System of Care (ROSC) to address the individuals’ physical, mental, social and emotional needs. You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team delivering a range of interventions in 1:1 and group work settings to support, encourage and motivate individuals to assist them to gain some stability back in their life.

Turning Point Scotland Glasgow Drug Crisis Centre

The Glasgow Drug Crisis Centre is a busy 24/7 service for drug users, combining a Methadone Clinic, Needle Exchange service and a 12 bedded Residential Unit. Its multi-disciplinary teams comprise social care workers, nurses and medical staff, who encourage and support Service Users to find ways of making their drug use less problematic and to achieve a better quality of life. Many Service Users will be unable to cope and be at risk, but whatever the issue Turning Point Scotland is committed to rehabilitation and recovery through effective person centred support.
