Faculty of Addictions Psychiatry


About us

The Faculty of Addictions is concerned with the assessment and treatment of people with complex medical and social needs arising out of Addictions or addictive behaviour (this may include gambling).

The substances may include alcohol, illicit drugs, prescribed or over-the-counter medication, and volatile solvents. There are a range of treatment options, from advice and information to psychological and pharmacological treatments which may include drug substitution or detoxification regimes.

Dealing with patient needs may involve wider aspects of healthcare such as GPs, hospital-based specialists in liver disease, HIV, mental health, etc. Social problems, legal problems, housing and employment may also require help; thus we work in teams with other professionals and disciplines.
