Changes to Reset and criminal justice services

Due to the rapidly changing situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) and in line with national guidance, we have made the difficult decision to stop face-to-face sessions for Reset (adult treatment) and criminal justice services (sometimes referred to as DIP). This includes Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR) and Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR).

If you currently use these services, you will continue to receive support over the phone. We will be contacting all service users to let them know of the changes, but if you haven’t heard from us then please contact:

  • Reset on 0203 889 9510
  • DIP on 0207 364 4459

Please be assured that if you usually attend a group as part of your DRR or ATR, you will not be ‘breached’ for non-attendance while these service changes are in place.

Community Alcohol Partnership

The Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) is an award-winning scheme that aims to develop a culture where both adults and young people drink alcohol responsibly and educate retailers of their responsibilities to not sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18.

The CAP area in Mile End has enjoyed a successful year of reducing alcohol related crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB). 

Public health has highlighted that excessive alcohol consumption can lead to a wide range of health related harms. Short term excessive alcohol consumption could lead to impaired senses, mood or personality changes, loss of consciousness and an increased risk of injury and accidents. Prolonged excessive alcohol consumption can lead to heart disease, stroke, liver disease, stomach damage and cancer.

The partnership aims to achieve the following:

  • reduce incidents of alcohol sales to young people under the age of 18
  • reduce youth-related anti-social behaviour associated with alcohol consumption
  • improve the health of young people so they are aware of the consequences and risks associated with drinking alcohol
  • reduce incidents of street drinking
  • develop a responsible retailing ethos and effective partnership approach in the CAP area
  • improve public perception on alcohol related issues.
