— Abstinence from all illicit and prescribed drugs,
— Abstinence or controlled consumption of alcohol,
— Community reintegration,
— Improved health and social functioning incorporating families.
On many occasions, families and carers first contact with the parent and carer support service will be to state that their drug and/or alcohol user is not engaged with drug/alcohol treatment services. The interventions delivered by this service will support the user to enter treatment. The sessions available to the family/carer need to be educational around substance misuse, treatment options, cycle of change, family dynamics and responses. The 2010 National Drug Strategy places great emphasis on recovery from drug misuse and the same principles also apply to alcohol misuse. Families also need to recover too and the parent and carer service will be crucial to the local delivery of family recovery from the associated experiences of drug and/or alcohol misuse.
The table below estimates the number of parents, partners and other family members in Derby requiring support across different substances. It is expected that the provider delivers interventions targeted across each domain represented in the table and also bases initial assumptions for alcohol and other drugs in accordance with the table, however, these are expected to change as further data surrounding prevalence becomes available.
i) Substance: Opiates and/or crack; Partners=351; Parents=401; Other=257; All Relatives=1009.
ii) Substance: Cocaine; Partners=197; Parents=190; Other=122; All Relatives= 509.
iii) Substance: Cannabis Age 16-24;Partners=428; Parents=1351; Other=383; All Relatives= 2162.
iv) Substance: Cannabis Age 25+; Partners=1295; Parents=476; Other=264; All Relatives =2036.
v) Substance: Alcohol; Data unavailable but expected to be higher than cannabis age 25+ numbers.
vi) Substance: Other Drugs inc Legal Highs; Data unavailable but expected to be slightly lower than cannabis age 16-24 numbers.
Description of these options: Yes, subject to satisfactory performance and funding availability contracts may be extended by up to two years, negotiated annually. For the avoidance of doubt, the initial contract length will be for 3 years with the option to extend 1 year + 1 year (maximum of 5 years).
