Do you have a problem with alcohol, drugs, gambling, gaming/internet or other addictions? Having such a problem can be a struggle for anyone. When the behaviour is an addiction, a concerted and structured approach is needed to help get your life back on track before the problem spins out of control, affecting you and your family.
The National Addictions Management Service (NAMS) provides outpatient treatment for a broad range of addictions, including addiction to drugs, alcohol, gambling, internet/gaming and others, and has an inpatient facility (Serenity Centre) for patients who need detoxification or rehabilitation. NAMS also runs two satellite clinics in IMH's Community Wellness Clinics (CWCs) in Queenstown and Geylang.
At NAMS, we conduct many different programmes and support groups for patients to equip them with the skills and knowledge in managing their addiction. We also run separate groups for their families to come together to share their experiences and learn from each other in their journey towards recovery.

We are from the National Addictions Management Service (NAMS), Singapore, and we have multiple ongoing research projects that require participants from the public as healthy controls to match with our research subjects of interest for comparisons. This means we need members of the public to help out and participate in our research studies, i.e. to get involved in interviews, surveys, clinical trials etc (details and involvement depend on the individual studies that are ongoing, we'll let you know when we contact you).
If you'd like keep in touch with us for relevant research studies here at NAMS, all we need is your preferred name, demographic and contact information and we will be in touch if you are a suitable match.
We greatly appreciate your interest to contribute to our research, and most of our studies will compensate you for your trouble and time with an inconvenience fee. We would be happier if you could also share this with your friends or relatives who might be keen. You can unsubscribe any time.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
