II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Council wishes to award a contract for the provision of an Adult Integrated Substance Misuse Service, which shall be delivered through a Recovery and Mentoring Service (Lot 1) and a Treatment Service (Lot 2).
The overall objective of the integrated service is to support individuals to recover from drug and/ or alcohol dependence, including abstinence.
It is expected that most individuals will receive support from both the Treatment and the Recovery and Mentoring elements of the integrated service as part of their recovery journey, and structured treatment interventions should be delivered within a wider context of recovery planning from the outset.
The following shared functions will be in place within the integrated service, irrespective of Provider configuration:
— A single point of contact;
— A single electronic case management system that the Council has access rights to for the purposes of developing public health intelligence reports (anonymised level data only). The Provider shall determine how the system will operate in practice in line with relevant legislation;
— A single method of reporting to the National Drug and Alcohol Monitoring Systems (NDTMS/NATMS) and DIRWEB;
— A assertive outreach process;
— A Single Assessment and Recovery Planning Framework (including risk assessment). The Providers will determine the safest and most pragmatic method of implementing the common assessment framework, however risks to the Service User, staff and wider public will be identified and addressed (where appropriate) at the earliest opportunity. The Provider shall ensure Service Users are not subject to repeated and overlapping assessment processes when accessing the Integrated Service. Where Service Users are engaged in both the Treatment and Recovery and Mentoring elements of the Integrated Service, review meetings will be a joint exercise.
— Effective partnership working with relevant agencies; to include establishing referral pathways into and out of a wide range of wrap-around and statutory services including (but not limited to): other substance misuse treatment/recovery services, sexual health services, smoking cessation services, carer services, prisons, custody suites, probation, hospitals, GP, dentist, housing, education, training and employment, safeguarding and leisure.
The Provider will work innovatively and flexibly to align the Service according to changing local needs and to maximise individual outcomes.
