What we do

VADT is part of the 'Newlands' team based in Barry.

Newlands is a NHS (CAU) and Local Authority Service (VADT) which supports people with substance misuse related difficulties across the Vale of Glamorgan.

VADT is the Local Authority Service; it includes a Specialist Substance Misuse Consultant Lead Social Worker, Social Care Officer and a support worker.

Working to the 'Social Services and Wellbeing Act 2014' this service aims to promote independence and wellbeing through information, advice and assistance whilst working to people's own unique strengths and abilities.

We are not an abstinence service but will work with people in establishing plans to meet their own personal outcomes and circumstances.

Examples of support are; one to one harm reduction work, access to specialist domiciliary services, assessment for residential rehab' treatment, access to a specialist support worker.

Full comprehensive assessments, outreach and office appointments offered.
