Addiction is a poorly understood branch of medicine and often sufferers feel uncomfortable discussing it.
At Fresh we understand the chronic relapsing nature of the disease and the importance of the impact of this disease on other prescribed medicines, mental health, other medical conditions and relationships.
We encourage you to discuss any problem you may have with substances whether they are prescribed (eg. oxycodone, morphine, benzodiazepines), illicit (eg. amphetamines, heroin) over the counter (eg codeine) or recreational (eg alcohol, nicotine) so that we can help you manage the problem or refer to your GP or specialised services.
To assist sufferers of drug addiction we offer the following services:
- Opiate Substitution Program (Methadone and Buprenorphine)
- Needle Exchange
- Staged Supply (eg Benzodiazepines)
- Nicotine Replacement
