What happens after I contact Leeds Club Drug Clinic?
If you decide to contact us on the number below we will discuss with you what you concerns are, what you would like to achieve, and whether you would like an appointment with the clinic.
If you choose to make an appointment, we will ask you for some details for our records. This is completely confidential, and we do not have to share this information with you GP. We do not routinely share any information about individuals in treatment with the police, employers, family members or anyone else. Appointments are with either a doctor or a nurse trained in treating addictions.
Your first appointment will involve a discussion about your current circumstances and what you hope to get out of treatment. From this we work together to develop an individualised plan to achieve your goals. In this we usually include:
- Current drug/alcohol use
- Physical and psychological health assessment
- Reasons for drug use, and also the difficulties associated with use
- Circumstances surrounding use, and how to help you cope or avoid risky situations
- What support you have from family/friends
As part of the treatment process we will also refer you to other services where necessary, for example urology services for ketamine bladder.
We have access to specialist practitioners who work with substance use in pregnancy and mental illness.
