The Changing Unwanted BEhaviour (CUBE) Clinic is a specialist NHS mental health service within the UCL University Clinic. The CUBE Clinic offers assessment and treatment for students with problems related to their use of alcohol, drugs and other addictive behaviours such as gaming, gambling and pornography. The team consists of a consultant psychiatrist, a psychologist and a trainee clinical psychologist.
The clinic is linked with the Club Drug Clinic, Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust, a multidisciplinary substance misuse service specialising in supporting people who experience problems with their use of club drugs and novel psychoactive substances.
We are able to offer face to face or video appointments depending on your preference.
The CUBE clinic is a free and confidential service open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students registered at UCL. We support students who are experiencing personal, emotional or psychological concerns related to alcohol and drug use and other behaviour patterns such as gaming, gambling and pornography. Your treatment at the CUBE clinic will never be shared with the University or anyone else without your consent.
We are not able to offer support to people who are already receiving ongoing treatment from local alcohol and drug services or other addiction services.
We work with you on the goal you choose - whether that is to stop a particular behaviour (abstinence), gain greater control or change aspects of the behaviour pattern. The CUBE Clinic has expert knowledge of a wide range of different types of harmful behaviours.
The CUBE Clinic offers short-term evidenced based psychological support including an initial assessment and a maximum of eight sessions of psychological therapy. If you need further support after this, we will support you to find the appropriate service.
