Mark Kendrick - Drug & Alcohol Specialist
I am a registered nurse independent prescriber, experienced in all aspects of addiction treatment and detoxification.
I began my work in home detoxification in the 1980's, working with General Practitioners, carrying out assessments and organising treatments and aftercare packages.
I offer comprehensive assessment, diagnosis, and formulation of addiction treatment options.
I have over 30 years of experience in the addiction field, across a wide range of addiction settings; including inpatient detoxification, prison and community services, as well as private detoxification and prescribing clinics.
Throughout this time, I have been engaged with clients dependent on alcohol and/or drugs.
I see detoxification as a stage in the process of achieving long term change, accompanying awareness raising and addressing changes to unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours, through a whole range of forums, be they silent reflection, one-to-one or group therapy or areas of mutual support.
