Sefton Treatment and Recovery Service
Date Posted - 18th November 2013
Delphi Medical are working in partnership with Lifeline to deliver the Sefton Treatment and Recovery Service (STARS); a fully integrated substance misuse service for adults with drug and/or alcohol problems living in Sefton Borough.
The service provides service users (and families/carers) with a wide range of provision aimed at moving people through treatment services into sustainable recovery and long term re-integration.
Delphi are delivering a comprehensive clinical treatment service, incorporating our well- developed medical assisted withdrawal model and stabilisation and reduction pathways. This enables service-users to work through a time-limited programme managed by specialist clinicians and to be supported through pre and post detoxification from start to finish.
Delphi staff are integrated into the Lifeline team which provides service users with coordinated pathways and assessments within a singular recovery focussed framework. At all times, service users benefit from receiving clinical interventions within a robust recovery plan and from having a dedicated recovery worker working with them to co-ordinate their care ensuring that all clinical provision is delivered in conjunction with psycho-social support to maximise the opportunity for achieving positive outcomes
An integral part of the STAR service is the delivery of health and wellbeing assessments and interventions through our recovery nurses with a lead nurse co-ordinating all health and wellbeing delivery. We have adopted the principles of five ways to wellbeing as part of the core DNA of our wellbeing delivery and this provides us with a platform to engage with stakeholders who can positively contribute to supporting our service users achieve the 5 ways.
We are working closely in partnership with Lifeline to promote the Recovery Agenda to primary care, pharmacy services and a wide range of stakeholders. We know the recovery focus can be liberating to GP’s as it brings it in line with other health interventions where there is a shift from a traditional medical model to a service-user centred approach.
