C3 Foundation Europe has now begun our difficult and frustrating task of offering our counselling services to the NHS.
We have experienced much success working with some open-minded, individual doctors, who are prescribing naltrexone or nalmefene whilst we are providing the aftercare support, but many doctors just will not stray from local NHS guidelines which tells them to refer potential patients onto locally commissioned Alcohol Recovery Centres (ARC).
We would like to tackle the 'warmer' leads first - that is those organisations that have prescribed naltrexone or nalmefene for use with The Sinclair Method.
So, if you have been prescribed either of these medications from your local ARC, please let me know which organisation it was (eg Addaction, CGL, Livewell, etc), and which town.
If you prefer to PM the information, then please do so.
This is going to be incredibly time-consuming and frustrating for us. The very first ARC I contacted yesterday replied to say thanks, but no thanks because they don't prescribe these medications..... and that is despite the fact that the local NHS has clearly stated to me that they have commissioned this particular organisation to do so! So, not only is it going to be about us talking to them and getting them on board, it's also going to be about having to educate them in some cases too!!
