Why Cranstoun helps
Alcohol and drug use can greatly impact individuals, families and communities. We understand that every person and their relationship with alcohol and drugs is different, and each person affected needs a different level of care. We’re determined to create an environment that reduces harm, that aids recovery without judgement and truly empowers the individual to create positive change in their lives and the lives of those they care about. Cranstoun understands that taking this first step to seek help, advice or support can often be the most difficult one. Because of this, we’re devoted to making the rest of the journey as easy and stress-free as possible. There is no problem too big for us to handle, and we’re here to reassure you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. No one should have to face these issues alone, and we’re here to welcome every person into our services with warmth, understanding and compassion.
