My son of 26 years is a heroin user although not sure how much he uses, probably not daily. He went to prison for one year in 2008 for ABH (used to drink a lot but now doesn’t drink much at all) and since out of prison things have gone down hill, he hasn’t been able to get a job and is living on benefit. Before prison always worked.
He probably has some underlying mental health distress, very depressed at the moment. I need to know what options there are for treatment, detox, support help groups, all in Brighton and Hove.
Possibilities also for psychiatric assessment and therapy through G.P. He doesn’t qualify for CRHT support, but most certainly does for a psychiatric assessment. Is this via G.P?
Please respond to my email. Thanks
