Bristol Drugs Project: Bristol Drugs Project (BDP) works in local communities and health centres to support GPs and their patients who present asking for help with an opiate dependence e.g. heroin. Shared care workers work with both GPs and patients to address a patient’s dependency through pharmacological and therapeutic interventions. BDP’s aim is to help reduce the harm to the patient and community from problematic drug use by supporting substituting prescribing.
Regular one-to-one sessions are available with a BDP worker at the Old School Surgery for people who are opiate dependent and wish to receive substitute medication.
You can be referred via your GP or you can call the BDP shared care office on 0117 9876018 or via email on [email protected]
