A Protocol for a Tobacco Free Detox Unit

Location: Sydney

Though it has become mandatory for public health facilities to become smoke-free it has been difficult to implement this policy in particular in detox, drug and alcohol units and mental health units.

Particularly complex in-patients in detox units have smoking patients objecting to a smoke free environment, commonly flout regulations, become argumentative and often self-discharge. 

This leaves staff in conflict with the patients and the regulations, unable to manage patients adequately according to the policy and occasionally relaxing the policy.
