PostScript360 promotes best practice of safe prescribing and withdrawal management of prescribed drugs associated with dependence and withdrawal (that do not risk disregarding the 2017 Consent Law) to all organisations and services. So together we can eradicate the harms of long-term use of pharmacological dependence.
“I was most impressed when you came and spoke to the Clinical Psychologists at the Coast Resource Centre a couple of months’ ago and I feel that our multidisciplinary team would really benefit from having the same talk. Your session was very informative and thought provoking – I believe that it really changed our thinking about the effects of, and withdrawal from, taking tranquilisers. For my part, it has made me question how readily our services prescribe these medications without always talking through the full implications with service users. We have many training and educational sessions, but I do feel that your talk is one which I will remember and will inform many future discussions on the subject.”
