“Psycho-social” is a phrase used to cover the kinds of groups and talking therapies that are available to support people with drug and alcohol problems to change.
In Somerset these are delivered by Turning Point. These groups and interventions may be accessed on their own or in conjunction with Substitute Prescribing treatment. The model of psycho-social interventions in the Somerset treatment system is supported by Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA).
