2 Getting Better 2010 Contents About treatment Contents Help available for drug and alcohol users and their families in Coventry is changing. This guide outlines the current range of services available for people affected by substance misuse living in the city. There are around 2,000 people who use heroin or crack in Coventry. Well over half receive help from treatment agencies each year. Most refer themselves to treatment agencies, but some are encouraged or ordered to attend through the criminal justice system. Government figures suggest every pound spent on drug treatment saves two and a half times that in crime and health costs. Around 5% of the adult population more than 11,000 people in Coventry are 'harmful drinkers'. These are individuals whose health has already been damaged because of their level of drinking. Depending on individual circumstances, the aim of treatment for substance misuse varies and could be; Client Aims To inject drugs more safely and reduce the risk of Hepatitis B, C and HIV viruses and infections To control and reduce the amount of alcohol or drugs being used and generally improve health To stop using alcohol and drugs completely and remain abstinent To find employment Services that may support these aims Use of clean injecting equipment from needle exchanges Learning safer injecting techniques Hepatitis B, C and HIV testing, vaccination and treatment Use of safer substitute medication like methadone instead of heroin Talking therapies to help sort out individuals problems Help to resolve practical problems like housing, etc - which may be causing substance misuse Complementary therapies like acupuncture Community detoxification and daily support to help remain drug and alcohol-free Help with housing Out-of-area rehab placements and resettlement Help with leisure and learning opportunities Training and support in finding work This directory is split into sections to identify agencies providing (medical and psychological) treatment help with housing help with social integration, education and employment help for sex workers self-help other support.
