The CNWL Club Drug Clinic was founded in 2010 for people who, for whatever reason, did not wish to attend mainstream, opiate-orientated drug treatment services. Our service focuses on established and emerging ‘club drugs’ including ketamine, methamphetamine, GHB/GBL, synthetic stimulants, prescription medications and hallucinogens.
The multi-disciplinary team works intensively with a small caseload leading to excellent results. Around 65-70% of people attending the service complete treatment successfully (the national average for non-opiates is 35%). The service works both with people wanting abstinence and those who want to cut down and use more safely. Approaches include NICE approved interventions such as relapse prevention, motivational interviewing and medically assisted detoxification.
In addition, we have excellent experience in the following
- Drug facilitated sexual behaviours (‘chemsex’)
- Student populations
- Prescription medication misuse including benzodiazepines and cognition enhancers
- Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD)
Research and quality improvement are embedded in the service culture and we have produced a number of free national resources for clinical staff. These include
- ATOMIC mobile phone app on prescription medication misuse - still in development
