St Helens and Knowsley Councils are requesting information about the provision of a recovery orientated alcohol and drugs inpatient detoxification service.

The particular aims of the service are:

1.      To provide a safe period of medically assisted withdrawal and detoxification

2.      To encourage, educate, motivate and enable realistic lifestyle changes utilising recovery principles.

3.      To ensure that treatment gains are maintained by developing robust links with aftercare support available within the community, including mental health services.

4.      To address the safeguarding and welfare needs of vulnerable adult service users or the children of alcohol misusing parents, ensuring that needs are identified and planned for prior to a person’s discharge from inpatient care.

Patients are tier 4 level of need and are not suitable for detoxification in the community.

It would therefore be expected that there was 24 hour medical presence within the facility and appropriately qualified staff to address likely co-morbidities.

This service is for adults 18 years and over who are registered with a St Helens or Knowsley GP and/or reside in St Helens or Knowsley and have been assessed as not being suitable for community based alcohol or drug detoxification.

It is anticipated that there will be in the region of 192 detoxes per annum (Knowsley and St Helens figures combined), 70 per cent of which are likely to be alcohol, although service requirements are demand led and demand may change.

Where travel for a patient exceeds 20 miles per one way journey, from the patient’s home address to the site of detoxification, then the provider would be expected to meet the travel costs for that patient whilst accessing care. This includes repeated and return journeys.

St Helens Council are coordinating and managing responses on behalf of both Knowsley Council and St Helens Council. As such Providers are invited to contact St Helens Council  by Friday 12 June 2015, via: www.thechest.nwce.gov.uk  and navigate to the St Helens Chest to assist Commissioners to understand Provider capability and capacity, in this complex, high need area.
