The British Doctors and Dentists Group

The British Doctors’ and Dentists' Group, formed in 1973, is a mutual support society for doctors and dentists who are recovering, or wish to recover, from addiction/dependency on alcohol or other drugs.

Membership is restricted to qualified medical and dental practitioners, and medical and dental students at the discretion of local secretaries. Accepted medical ethics regarding confidentiality apply strictly within the group. There is absolutely no formality involved in joining us for a meeting - just contact the national secretary or a branch secretary (details on the meetings page) by phone  or e-mail address or through this website.  No records of your name or contact details are kept except by the local branch secretary who will never share them with anyone under any circumstances without your express permission.
