New Beginnings is an integrated service delivered by Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) in partnership with Westminster Drug Project (WDP) and B3 (Brent Service User Council).

New Beginnings' Clinical Prescribing Service provides specialist interventions and treatment options to people who are dependent on opiates, drugs, alcohol or other psychoactive substances.

It offers substitute prescribing, harm minimisation information, key work and access to community and in-patient detoxification and stabilisation, liaison and referral to the GP Shared Care Scheme, support for families of those with drug and alcohol problems and practical help around housing, education and employment to help people reintegrate back into society.

  • Anyone aged 18 and over who is a resident of Brent and who wants to stop or reduce their drug or alcohol use.
  • Priority is given to pregnant women, people with significant mental or physical health problems and those who have recently left prison or rehabilitation.
  • Prescribing treatment can also continue to people being transferred from another prescribing agency.

Any professional, such as housing support worker, social worker or nurse, can make the referral on your behalf.

You can also visit our service in person or contact us by phone.  You will be able to talk to one of our duty team who will help you decide which service best meets your needs.
