Treatment Programme

Hafan Wen offers flexible treatment packages that include stabilisation and detoxification that meet the individual needs of service users.

Hafan Wen “works around” the needs of the service user where appropriate and this is possibly due to the close collaboration with the statutory referring agencies. We understand that service users have varied needs and acknowledge our responsibility within the care planning process to facilitate continuity of care throughout their treatment at Hafan Wen.

Hafan Wen has close links with the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) which ensures a rapid response in the event of an acute psychiatric or medical emergency.

Although rarely used, the close proximity of the Board’s psychiatric and medical facilities on the Wrexham Maelor Hospital site and agreed protocols ensures efficient and seamless transfers when necessary.

Our Detoxification Protocol has been developed in collaboration with the local commissioning body, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and based on current Public Health and NICE guidelines.

The protocol is audited by the BCUHB Trust, Service Manager and the Regional General Hospital pharmacy, which provides Hafan Wen with its medication. The Consultant Psychiatrist and service doctor assess all service users in accordance with Local Health Board prescribing guidelines.

Our staff team review medical withdrawal on a daily basis and consult with the service users in relation to dosage, rate of reduction and any other factors that contribute to the user completing their detoxification regime comfortably and successfully.

This includes the monitoring of physical conditions related and unrelated to substance misuse. Where indicated in the referral documentation or following consultation with the service user and referring service, Naltrexone, Disulfiram or Acamprosate may be prescribed and commenced prior to leaving the service.
