Our Shared Care team work alongside GPs in selected surgeries across Bristol to support you around your alcohol or drug use.

If you are dependent on a substance, your GP may decide you are appropriate to receive prescription medication which can be medically reduced over a period of time. If you are seeking support for an opiate drug, it may be appropriate to prescribe a different opiate than the one you are currently using.

Get a prescription

To get a prescription you will need to visit your doctor and ask them to refer you to BDP.

If you don’t know where your GP is, or you are not registered, you can search for your nearest GP and get in contact with them directly.

The map below shows all the GP surgeries that work with our Shared Care team and can prescribe medication. If your current GP does not prescribe, you may need to change to a GP that does.
