As you are probably aware, following the recent procurement process, from 1st November 2018 Change Grow Live (CGL) will be providing the Integrated Drug and Alcohol services for adults in Gateshead in partnership with the GP Federation and Recovery Connections, under the name 'Gateshead Recovery Partnership'.
6 GP's surgeries: Oxford Terrace, Bensham Family Practice, Teams Surgery, Central Medical Group, Birtley Medical Group and Whickham Surgery will provide specialist opiate prescribing treatment. Recovery Connections will deliver a wide-range of activities and programmes to help support clients through their recovery. Clients will be offered groups, programmes and services including Quasi Residential Rehabilitation. (The residential programme, is based on the 12 step programme and lasts for 24 weeks with open ended after care following discharge. There are opportunities for Day Care if residential is not assessed to be appropriate.)
To aid the smooth transition to the new service we are holding 3 Stakeholder Mobilisation Workshops on Wednesday 17th October 2018.
