What we offer


Set in GP surgeries, the specialist worker works closely with the GP to identify and help individuals who are on long term repeat benzodiazepine prescriptions to reduce and eventually cease taking their medication. Using psychosocial interventions, the worker helps individuals acquire the skills necessary to reduce their medication and deal with any underlying issues.

Additional women’s only hours: Thursday 4.00pm - 9.30pm, Salem Street only.
