A charity that has helped people with drink problems for four decades is to shut down after funding was stopped.
The centre has helped hundreds of people over the years
Staff at the Crown Street Alcohol Centre told BBC Scotland they could not understand why NHS Grampian and Aberdeen City Council pulled support.
The charity opened in 1974 and helps about 240 people each year.
NHS Grampian and the council said the decision was taken after members of the management committee said they were retiring.
The centre's four staff began turning new referrals away last week.
It is expected it will close for good in March next year at the latest.
Crown Street Alcohol Centre chairman Dr Douglas Fowlie said: "The management committee are extremely concerned about the withdrawal of the service.
"We are at a loss to understand the reasons for closure."
In a joint statement, NHS Grampian and the city council said money would be re-invested into other services.
