Bristol Drugs Project

Drug problems affect lots of people. A national poll in 2009 showed that almost one in five adults have been personally affected by drug addiction: that's over 82,000 people in Bristol.

Tackling a drug problem is tough - but there are people making major changes in their lives every day. Bristol Drugs Project helps over 3,000 people a year to make those changes.

Shared Care Workers from Bristol Drugs Project are employed to support the GPs in the assessment, management and care of opiate-dependent patients.

A full needs and risk assessment is usually carried out before substitute medication such as Methadone or Subutex may be prescribed for patients. The aim of the shared care service is to reduce illegal street drug use, maintain stability whilst on regular prescriptions and in the long term to achieve abstinence.

We have a non-judgmental approach to the provision of this service.
