The service will support GPs with their patients who wish to stop drinking where they are identified as dependent drinkers. This will include pre-detox motivation; ascertaining that the patient is ready and prepared for a detox; medical preparation – clear checks with the GP concerning any other health issues and their impact on the alcohol detox process, management of the detox and post detox care pathway planning and support. It will also support patients through an in-patient detox where that route for is the preferred option for a patient wishing to stop drinking.
Whilst there is a requirement for clinical staff to support prescribing and detox, it is envisaged that the successful bid will emphasise a psychological model of treatment, supported by recovery workers who are competent to work across a spectrum of addiction, rather than a predominantly medical model.
This service will work in conjunction with the Tier 3 SPOC service currently provided by Phoenix Futures.
The primary function of this service is to enable patients to understand the differences and make informed choices between Alcohol Dependency and Recovery through the process of detoxification.
