The Mid and East Lothian Drugs Contact Service provides a direct point of contact for all substance use related services.  

The phone line will be answered: 

Monday to Friday 9am-5pm,
Thursday to Sunday 5pm-10pm

At all other times, there is an option to leave a voicemail message, or send a text and a member of the team will contact you as soon as possible. 


What will happen when I call? 

On calling the MELD Contact Service individuals, or concerned family members or friends, can engage in a confidential, trauma informed, person centred conversation focussed on addressing their concerns and needs. 

From there the individual or caller will be directed to the most appropriate service or combination of services to gain appropriate support. 

If the issues raised concern opiod use, an individual may be offered a same day / next day appointment, assessment and treatment, with the offer to commence Opioid Replacement Therapy on the same day.
