We assist medical and nursing staff to manage patients with complications related to substance misuse syndrome, such as withdrawal or intoxication. Services include:

  • substance misuse assessment
  • harm minimization strategies
  • brief interventions.

We liaise with community alcohol and other drug services, both public and private, to facilitate engagement with patients who require ongoing support, treatment and management post-discharge from SCGH.
