Drugsline-Chabad website launch make services accessible to all

Drugsline-Chabad, the drugs and alcohol rehab charity based in north-east London, today announced the launch of a wide ranging and interactive website.

Drugsline Director, Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin and Schools Caseworker, Darren Gold, joined students and staff at Beal High School to demonstrate how the new website can help those most in need.

Anyone with an issue relating to drugs can contact the service through the website or the helpline, as well as accessing valuable information on the effects of drugs and methods of help.

The website launch is part of Drugsline's push to extend its services and make sure more people can benefit from the help it can offer.

Drugsline Director, Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin said,

"The launch of the new website is an important step forward in terms of increasing Drugsline's accessibility.

"Anyone accessing the internet now knows how to contact Drugsline, wherever they may be in the country.

"We very much hope this will encourage both those who need help, and volunteers who can help them, to come forward."
