The substance abuse clinics, run by the seven service clusters of the Hospital Authority, accept referrals from counselling centres for psychotropic substance abusers, voluntary agencies and other health care providers, as well as patients seeking service direct from them. Services include drug treatment, counselling and in some cases, psychotherapy.
