About Port Of Call

Port of Call is a website and helpline for anyone affected by addiction.

We’re independent advisors on treatment services in the UK, who understand recovery because we have been there. Our entire team has direct experience of addiction.

Port of Call was born out of the experience of founder Martin Preston, who has been in sustained recovery from alcohol and drug addiction since 2004. He and his family found a void in terms of where to turn for help and advice when he needed it, resulting in an initial residential rehabilitation placement that wasn’t right for him.

The Port of Call team refers people to the treatment services that it knows work, using vast knowledge of treatment professionals, support groups, counsellors, detox clinics and rehab centres and tailoring recommendations to individual circumstances and needs.

Since its inception in 2015, Port of Call’s team has organised hundreds of interventions, detoxes, rehab and counselling placements.

The help and advice we received from Martin and his team was invaluable in helping us address a problem that had impacted our whole family for too long. Our loved one has successfully recovered from addiction and found a new lease of life. We cannot thank them enough.
Bobby Fletcher, whose loved one completed a 28-day detox and rehab placement via Port of Call.

I am delighted with the service we are receiving from Martin and his team. Martin is so passionate about the service and has personally led awareness sessions across the organisation - helping managers signpost our colleagues to the support available to assist with the spectrum of addiction issues. A number of colleagues have benefitted from the service. Thank you Martin for all that you do.
