M3THOD Service

If you are someone who mixes drugs and sex and you are looking for some support, help is at hand.

A M3THOD service is a FREE, confidential service led by trained and non-judgemental peers. You can access this service in person, or virtually via video call. Appointments are run by people who have personal lived experiences around using drugs like crystal and G in combination with sex. The consultation will usually go for about 30-45 minutes. The peer will lead you through a structured chat to work out how best they can help. Peers are trained, and everything is strictly confidential.

If you PnP, the peer chat can help you:

  • Learn how to party and play safer

  • Assess your relationship with party and play

  • Learn strategies to manage your use

  • Find out what services are available to you and how you can access them
