LEAP (Lothians & Edinburgh Abstinence Programme)

by NHS Lothian

LEAP is a 3-month treatment and rehabilitation programme for those dependent on alcohol and other drugs (including opiates, stimulants, cannabis, tranquillisers etc.). It is suitable for those who want to achieve a substance-free recovery. The programme is part of the services provided by the Substance Misuse Directorate and is delivered in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council and Encompass.

There are several elements in the LEAP programme to help people achieve recovery. These are:
- Medical care (including detoxification)
- Therapeutic (group and one to one sessions)
- Mutual aid/recovery community resources
- Support with housing
- Education, training and employability
- Aftercare
- Family Programme

We will take referrals from any professional involved in the care of a suitable patient. Referrals are accepted in the form of a letter from professionals and GPs may make referrals via Sci Gateway.
