Drugs & alcohol
If you’d like some advice and support when it comes to drugs and alcohol, we can help. Our case workers are here to offer you support, whether you need someone to talk to, or you’d like to seek further help.
Talk to Us
The support from MASH staff is non-judgemental, free and available to all female sex workers. Our case workers are available if you would like further support, or to talk confidentially about drugs and alcohol use.
Each week, at the Wednesday evening drop-in (8:00pm – 10:45pm), MASH also has a Drug Worker available, who carries out assessments for drug treatment, including methadone, and can make referrals for detox.
MASH Needle Exchange
MASH also offers a needle exchange service at the drop-in (Mon – Fri from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, and Tues – Thurs 8:00pm – 10:45pm) and on the outreach van (two evenings a week).
This service is free and we won’t judge you, or make you feel uncomfortable in any way.
There are also a number of other needle exchange services, as well as other drug and alcohol support services (make link) throughout Manchester.
