Prescribing and Nurses
If you are an opiate user (Such as Heroin, Opium, Methadone, Subutex, Morphine) we can support you by preparing you for an appointment with one of our specialist Doctors. Our specialists can assess suitability for prescribing, so instead of using an illegal substance like Heroin we can prescribe controlled drugs such as Methadone (or Physeptone) and Subutex (or Buprenorphine) to stabilise your dependence and develop a plan to help you come off it at a pace that suits you.
If you have difficulty with Alcohol we can support you in the same way to access prescribing by our specialist Doctors who can develop the same type of plan but prescribe Accamprosate (or Campril) or Antabuse, depending on the desire recovery plan.
Our Nurses also provided testing and treatment for Blood Bourne Viruses for anyone at risk, they can complete health checks for anyone being prescribed and provide support for performance enhancing drug users which is currently being piloted at our Leamington service.
