Drug and Alcohol Advice
Locala provide a drug and alcohol treatment service for adults living in and around the Kirklees area. If you or someone you know needs help or support with a drug or alcohol problem please get in touch with our team - we are here to help.
We can give:
- Confidential advice
- Help to minimise harm including a needle exchange
- Screening and immunisation for blood borne viruses, e.g. hepatitis B
- Prescribed treatment e.g. Methadone and Subutex
- One stop clinics dealing with both drug and alcohol problems
- Aftercare and programmes of activities
- Support with education and employment
- Nurse led Wound Care Clinics
- A Shared Care Scheme in partnership with local GPs
Our specialist doctors and nurses help the most vulnerable and chaotic drug users and alcohol dependent adults. Support around behaviour change and coping with lifestyle issues is provided by key workers employed by Lifeline Kirklees or On-Trak, a local charity commissioned by the NHS to work in partnership with Locala. Services also include a Community Detox provision where individuals can be supported and closely monitored within their own homes to undergo assisted withdrawal from substances.
Wound Care Service
Our Wound Care team run drop-in sessions twice a week within the Lifeline Building in Dewsbury. They offer advice and treatment for wounds, infections and ulcers suffered by injecting drug users.
A & E Alcohol Liaison Team
The Alcohol Liaison team offer screening, support and advice to individuals with alcohol related problems within the A&E and ward settings.
Shared Care Scheme
The Share Care Scheme with GPs provides an ideal setting for patients who are stable, in treatment and who do not have complex drug or alcohol related problems. Attached to each practice is a Shared Care Substance Misuse Nurse who runs joint clinics with the GP offering a methadone prescribing service as well as support around behaviour change and coping with lifestyle issues.
