Addictions Psychology Service (APS)

The Addictions Psychology Service (APS) is a Lanarkshire wide service.

We work closely with the Integrated Addiction Service to provide service users with individual and group based interventions, consultancy, supervision, and support.

Much of the APS is community based, although inpatient contact is provided as appropriate.

The problems that respond well to psychological intervention include severe depression, complex anxiety related problems, traumatic stress disorder, sexual abuse and anger management.

When is the service available?

The service is the same across all three hospital sites.

Service is delivered on Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm.


Referrals to the APS are via staff in the addictions service or from consultant psychiatrists.
