About us

WDP is a vibrant and innovative drug and alcohol charity committed to helping those who are affected by substance misuse. For over 25 years we have provided support to individuals, their families and the wider communities from centres across London, the South East and East of England. We believe with the right support people can make long-lasting transformations in their lives to improve health, wellbeing and social integration.

WDP began life as a little community centre in Westminster. Since then, our dedication and passion for supporting people throughout their recovery has helped us to become of the leading providers of drug and alcohol services. Today we deliver multiple services on behalf of local authorities, commissioned by the Drug & Alcohol Action Teams (DAATs).  These include abstinence-based therapy, aftercare and reintegration, alcohol services, children and families interventions, clinical services, criminal justice services, detox and rehab, support with housing, prison-based services and psychosocial services.

The energy and expertise of our teams at every level upholds our commitment to delivering services that are uniquely tailored to the individual. We pride ourselves on positioning our services users at the heart of everything we do and our services are structured to empower individuals to take control of their own recovery and in doing so, to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives.

This approach, coupled with effective collaboration across our service provision and shared social value across all of our services ensures we continue to provide the highest levels of satisfaction, support and care.
