Over the last few months, Surrey County Council have been consulting on proposed changes to substance misuse services in the county. To find out more click here

The consultation closed on 20 May: the public were invited to either contact Public Health direct with their questions and feedback, answer an online questionnaire and/or to attend four face-to-face drop-in sessions that were held across Surrey.

We are very pleased with the level of response. A summary of the Consultation Feedback received is available via the link and further information, including an updated Frequently Asked Questions document is available on the Surrey Says website at

The new ambulatory detoxification service starts on 2 July 2018 and inpatient detoxification will be provided out of county. Home and community detoxification services for drugs and alcohol are unchanged.  All referrals for these services should be directed through the Farnham Road Hub:
