Anyone can refer themselves to the Core Service by attending one of the Gateway to Recovery Clinics operating across Midlothian and East Lothian. They will then be offered regular one to one appointments with a Substance Misuse Worker.
The MELD Core Service supports individuals throughout East Lothian and Midlothian to deal with and overcome substance misuse and alcohol issues. Clients are offered confidential one to one appointments in a location close to their homes, where they can safely explore their issues. MELD works in partnership with other agencies to be part of an on-going Recovery Programme, benefiting those who need our support in addition to the support of other agencies.
We are currently able to offer face to face appointments again. COVID updates are reviewed regularly in line with Scottish Government advice. For more information, see our Coronavirus updates page.
MELD use the Outcome Star in one to one sessions. This helps us to measure and support change, whilst allowing clients to identify areas of life that they would like to make positive changes to.
