Coronavirus: 'Isolation' of drug and alcohol addiction under lockdown

Drug and alcohol referrals have fallen by 57% during lockdown, a charity has warned.

Kaleidoscope said the "significant reduction" came after it closed non-clinical bases and recovery hubs on 18 March.

Rachel Cook, 44, said she had found not having face-to-face meetings "very difficult".

"It is different when you're not getting that face-to-face contact, you're not getting that cup of tea when you get in the door, when you're not sitting down in the waiting room chatting to other people in recovery," she said.

The Welsh Government said services had "adapted rapidly" during the pandemic.
