If you are concerned about your use or your support needs, there are a number of ways in which we can support you: choose the option that suits you best.
That’s great. Email us if that changes, or see more online support from us here, like videos, online tools and harm reduction tips. Click here to visit our chemsex information and harm reduction pages.
Good; do you want to stay in touch with us weekly to be sure? Here is an invitation to commit to a contract of weekly ‘commitment’ emails. 5 minutes, 1 weekly email. Click here to begin this process.
Ok. We want to help. This option is a robust ‘Motivational Interviewing’ method template that helps you identify a goal and gives you skills to achieve it; it’s designed to help you feel more in control of your use and your choices. Approximately 15 to 20 minutes, 1 weekly email. Click here to begin this process.
No problem; we have a plan for that too. Click here to begin this process.
Cool. No pressure, it’s your choice, your goals. These questions here might help you reflect on that, and you can contact us if or when you feel ready. Click here if you’d like to try a reflective exercise that can help you weigh the pros and cons of making changes. Please note our Chemsex tool is under construction so you are being linked to a partner website.
Please message email@example.com to discuss your needs and options

Note for health professionals, referring patients to chemsex support;
we accept referrals for gay, bisexual or other men who have sex with men (including trans people) who are using drugs in sexual and recreational contexts only. If the person’s use is more problematic, if there is dependent/daily use, or drug use associated with complex mental health issues, the correct referral would be to the patient’s local borough drug and alcohol service.
We remind people that our chems support staff are not trained, equipped or able to provide crisis response. There are some emergency contacts below.
That’s ok; you can video-call without an appointment during any the following times to speak with a chems adviser. Just click on the link any Tuesday between 5 and 7pm or Thursdays between 1 and 4pm.
