II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
— We intend to align the entire supporting infrastructure to drug and alcohol services in a way that the commissioning and delivery of the services reflects this vision of an enhanced integrated model with a balance between prevention and early intervention support to universal services and recovery for those who require a specialist service intervention. Service providers will need to embrace this agenda and configure their delivery to achieve the desired outcome of early intervention, prevention, abstinence and recovery.
— To achieve our vision and ambition public health commissioners believe it is critically important to contract with a provider agency (or a collaboration of agencies with a single lead agency) who share our vision, demonstrating innovative methods to deliver our ambition and deliver positive outcomes for the residents of Walsall. The challenge of intervening to prevent the damage created by drug and alcohol misuse is a dynamic phenomenon. We are seeking an equally dynamic provider agency to engage in a partnership with the commissioners to deliver the local services.
— Drug and alcohol treatment on its own rarely delivers the intended outcomes to reverse the damage caused by drug and alcohol misuse. The need to link treatment provision with housing services, employment and training opportunities is critically important. The challenge to the provider agency will be to maintain the advances made over the last 10 years and add to the momentum with innovative use of peer led and local third sector support services integrated into mainstream delivery. Developments such as the New Work Programme, Job Centre Plus, Supported Housing and recovery programmes will provide real opportunities for service users to take responsibility for their lifestyles, supporting people to live drug and alcohol dependent free productive lives. It will be the role of the treatment providers to build appropriate links to these support services to assist each individual’s recovery.
— There is a recognition that the investment in drug treatment system has resulted in an easy access and expansion of the range of services available to service users. There is support through the complete treatment journey which for increasing numbers has resulted in successful exits from structured treatment. The integrated treatment system outlined in this specification intends to maintain the progress made in relation to opiate and cocaine users in treatment and extending the range of interventions to alcohol service users and emerging new substances e.g. novel psychoactive substance.
