Open Dialogue Interventions Pilot

Open Dialogue is a technique which has been predominantly used within the mental health field and which involves parties, such as the client, their family/friends and practitioners/clinicians, having discussions and making decisions within network meetings.

Open Dialogue is being delivered across a number of WDP sites and the IRU is conducting semi-structured interviews with professionals, service users and family/friends who have been involved. The research aims to establish the feasibility of Open Dialogue within community substance misuse settings and findings will be used to inform how the intervention will be delivered within the sector going forwards.
