Please follow the resource below to view the Gloucestershire Formulary information on other drugs used for substance dependence.

Practice Point:

Opiate Substitution Treatment:

Prescribers are reminded that the commissioned provider of Drug and Alcohol services within Gloucestershire is Change Grow Live (CGL). Independent prescribing from GPs of substance misuse drugs (particularly methadone and buprenorphine for the purpose of treating dependency rather than pain) may impact patient safety and raise  governance concerns with the CQC. Please refer people to CGL as appropriate; via Services and Referrals tab.
