Help with practical difficulties
Attached to the community substance misuse team are support workers who are based across Aberdeenshire. These support workers work with you on tasks agreed in your care plan.
These can include:
- helping you to sort out your finances - such as benefits or arrears
- confidence building
- help with household or family routines
- nutrition or healthy eating
- helping you to yo get involved with activities away from the drug or drinking culture
Help from a support worker is arranged by your care manager and is part of your care plan. There is initially a time limit on this assistance.
Progress is regularly looked at with you and your care manager to decide how successful the work has been and what future work may be needed.
