The programme lasts for six weeks and involves daily visits to the Torley Unit as part of your treatment. Your first appointment may last up to one hour with a member of the nursing team or medical staff. It is important not to stop drinking alcohol suddenly if you are alcohol dependent.
The Torley Unit is a hospital based service, run by nurses and medical staff. Treatment at the unit involves a range of options, including psychological therapies and medicines like antabuse.
On completion of the programme, there are a range of services and support networks available. Staff can refer on to appropriate agencies such as RCA Trust, Renfrewshire Association for Mental Health (RAMH) or the NetWork employability service.
