This should be included in the facility’s Unplanned Discharge PolicyPreparation Plan has been drawn up between service user and keyworker and actions completed. This to cover practicalities such as partners, benefits, housing, dependents and pets, bills and other financial commitments, arrangements re: utilities etc., psychological preparation (e.g. experience of previous withdrawal, what can be expected, strategies for coping) and clinical plan re:other medications (e.g. anti-depressants, pain relief).
