What is DASPA?

DASPA is a single point of access for advice, information and an easy route into services for those affected by substance use in the Cwm Taf and Bridgend areas.

The Drug and Alcohol Single Point of Access (DASPA) provides easier access for service users, family members, concerned others and professionals to obtain advice or make a referral to all substance use services across Cwm Taf and Bridgend, including Barod, Community Drug and Alcohol Teams (CDAT) and Dyfodol (Criminal Justice).

There are multiple ways to access this service, by telephone, by SMS or by using our online service.

DASPA is operated by Barod, for more information about Barod click here.

Barod is the Welsh word for ‘Ready’

Our aim is to support anyone who is ready to change and to make a difference to their own lives or the lives of others.

This means providing high-quality, free and confidential support and guidance to anyone who is affected by drug or alcohol use, either their own or someone else’s; and raising awareness about the ways we can all help to reduce the harm caused by substance use.
