TRANQUILLISER WITHDRAWAL CENTRE
OPENS IN OLDHAM
August 18, 2004
Oldham's pioneering health service for tranquilliser addicts opened on Monday with a presentation to mark the occasion.
The new scheme is being run by Oldham's Alcohol and Drug Service in Union Street, and it is funded by the Oldham Primary Care Trust. Local campaigner Barry Haslam, from Oldham Tranx group, which has successfully fought for the service for people addicted to legally prescribed drugs, handed over a DVD and video of a national conference held in Oldham in April, and a photograph marking the event.
The presentation was to Mrs Gail Richards, chief executive of Oldham Primary Care Trust, who was also a speaker at the April conference. She is pictured, second right, with from left, Kathryn Evans, a member of Oldham Tranx group, Mr Haslam, and Mike Levins, the Tranx group medical adviser.
