Complex Needs Team

The Complex Needs Team (CNT) is a small multidisciplinary team of Community Psychiatric Nurses (CPN's), substance misuse workers and support workers, supported by Plymouth Specialist Addiction Service, and with one day a week of Consultant General Psychiatrist input.

The focus of the work is dual diagnosis - the co-existence of substance misuse and mental health disorders, when the presentation is complex and unstable.

We offer modality work with Community Mental Health Teams/Assertive Outreach Service/other providers and some care co-ordination. Assessment and a range of specialist interventions are available.
