Startti info sessions in substance abuse services

Treatment at the Substance Abuse Outpatient Clinic begins with the low-threshold Startti info session.

Tailored for those contemplating their own substance use, Startti info sessions provide insights into substance abuse services and addiction. Moreover, they offer guidance towards recovery and commencing substance abuse treatment. At Startti, you will also have the opportunity to hear from an experience expert.

Participation in Startti is both anonymous and free from pre-registration requirements. Following the Startti info session, you can embark on a personalised treatment programme crafted exclusively for you at the Substance Abuse Outpatient Clinic.
