About us

The Equipe de liaison et de soins en addictologie (ELSA, Addiction Care and Liaison Team) is a multidisciplinary cross-functional mobile team. We work in hospital departments to help patients with addictive behaviours (excessive consumption and/or dependence), with products (tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, heroin, cocaine, medicines...) or without products (behavioural addictions to video games, internet, sports, sex, work...).

The ELSA offers support to health care eams on addiction-related issues encountered by patients of the Groupement Hospitalier Est. Our team works in 3 hospitals: Pierre Wertheimer, Louis Pradel and Femme-Mère-Enfant, located in Lyon and its conurbation.
 

The service has two main activities:

  • Liaison: with hospitalised patients and with healthcare teams, to offer a medical opinion in the addiction medicine field.

  • Consultation: outpatients, and patients who are not hospitalised can consult our team. 

OUR MISSIONS: TRAINING, PROVIDING ASSISTANCE AND ADVICE

With patients, their friends and family, supporting health care teams:

  • To identify addictive issues of various severity early on.

  • To inform, guide / refer and support (withdrawal, follow-up...).

With health care teams:

  • To train, assist and advise the health care teams of various departments on disease screening, diagnosis, care and referral of patients with addictive behaviour.

With health care partners:

  • To coordinate care given to patients by working with partners inside and outside the hospital.

  • To develop a care network and to participate in preventative actions.
