Can I access any services without accessing the BAT?

Question:
Can I access any services without accessing the BAT?
Answer:
The BAT is the gateway into clinical and non clinical structured treatment and long-term support. However, there are pre-treatment  options available to you. You may still access services such as the Needle Exchange, Open Access Drop-in, Support Groups, Progress to  Treatment and one-to-one support without having an assessment. For an informal conversation about this, please contact the drop-in service at The Trinity Project on 01202 558855.
