If you struggle to access our services, whether this is due to childcare, health needs or work commitments, Inspire’s digital team are here to help! Provided you have the technology needed, such as a smart phone or access to a computer, your entire Inspire Journey could be done digitally.

Under certain circumstances, there may be times where you need to come into our service – for example if we need to prescribe you medication.  However, you can still access digital support alongside face to face appointments.



Refer yourself online to begin your Inspire journey today.  Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to get the support you need without ever entering an Inspire building.



Our digital team can offer support via email, skype and telephone, so you can access support at a time and place that’s convenient for you.


Recovery Support

Once you’ve met your goals, we’ll still stay in touch to check up on how you’re doing.  This can be by email, social media or telephone – whatever works for you!

Online Support Tools

Depending on your level of drug or alcohol use, you might not feel like Inspire’s support is needed.  Our range of online tools can help you to assess what support you need, and plan to reduce your own substance use.


  • Our Alcohol Screening Tool and Drug Screening Tool are short surveys you can take online, which will help you consider whether your substance use is harmful.
  • Check out our Drug and Alcohol Diaries, which will help you log the amount you’re using, raising awareness of your current drinking or drug taking habits.
  • Our Goal Setter can be downloaded, so you can set realistic and manageable goals to reduce your intake, and used with our Weekly Planner, can be the first step to reducing your drug or alcohol use.
