5 This Service Directory has been produced by Safer Bristol to assist anyone wanting to find out about drug and alcohol treatment and how to access services. It also covers current legislation, emergency services, helplines, needle exchange, temporary accommodation and what to do about getting rid of drug litter. The Directory lists drug and alcohol treatment and support agencies in alphabetical order. The Directory brings together all services for substance misuse treatment including treatment for dependence on illicit drugs, alcohol, legal highs and in all settings (community, in-patient/residential and prison). The focus is on the individual, not the drugs they are using at any given time and their personal journey to recovery. Research tells us that treatment works for people with substance misuse problems. However, success depends upon individuals getting into treatment that is right for them and enabling and supporting their ambition to recover, so this Directory is here to help. What is currently available in Bristol? Treatment for drug and alcohol misuse problems comes in a variety of forms. These range from services where anyone can walk in off the street to more structured services that you need to make an appointment for. Walk-in or open access services Advice and information Drop-in services Needle exchange Carers/family support services (these can also be structured) Structured treatment Specialist prescribing GP prescribing & shared Care Detoxification (in a hospital, residential or home setting) Day programmes Counselling Relapse prevention Residential rehabilitation The Service Directory is produced by Safer Bristol in consultation with service providers and service users. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure information in the Directory is as accurate as possible at the time of going to print, no responsibility can be accepted for any errors or omissions. Please check the online version for any changes, updates and amendments at 3
