Getting Support

START

The START (Stockport Triage Assessment Referral Team) offer anyone aged over 26 a free and confidential service to access the alcohol and/or drug support and treatment that’s right for you.

If you are aged 25 or under you can contact MOSAIC - our dedicated young people’s service.

The team will speak with you on a one-to-one basis, making sure we understand your needs so we can guide you towards the support that is best for you.

There are a number of different alcohol and drug services available in Stockport and one of our aims is to make sure that you’re supported in finding the right service.
