Losing control over alcohol and drug use
Alcohol or drugs are used to relax, but can be harmful when used in excess.
Alcohol dependence is a condition evaluated and managed both at the clinic and with colleagues in specialist units, community based organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and at community and inpatient treatment centres. We have particular expertise in the area of detoxification from alcohol dependence and a keen clinical interest in advising and managing individuals finding themselves locked into habitual drinking to ward off unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
The clinic routinely works with individuals who use drugs but does not have a specialist drug / addictions treatment programme, and does not provide opiate substition treatment.
