I.1) Name and addresses:
NUTS code: UKK12
I.4) Type of the contracting authority: REGIONAL AUTHORITY
I.5.1) Main Activity: GENERAL PUBLIC SERVICES
Adult Community Based Drug and Alcohol Treatment Service
The current service is a combined drug and alcohol treatment and support service. The programmes currently available range from information and advice to medically assisted detoxification; from one-to-one sessions to structured day-programmes; from needle exchange services to prescribing programmes; and from volunteering opportunities to formal education sessions. The new service will encompass much of what is currently provided but, reflecting the reduced budget, the expectations of the Provider in relation to several elements of the service (such as in-house mental health care; criminal justice interventions; and smoking cessation) have been reduced. The new service will increase the provision of early interventions through a programme of training and support for non-specialist agencies.
II.1.6) This contract is divided into lots: no
NUTS code: UKK12
II.1.4) Short description
The Service will provide both pharmacological and psychosocial programmes for the addiction and dependence to illicit substances and alcohol.
The Service will continue to have the overarching aim of reducing the harms caused by drug and alcohol use. More specifically it will; prevent early mortality caused by drug and alcohol use; reduce levels of dependence; reduce levels of drug and alcohol crime; reduce demand on social care; improve the lives of children of parents with drug or alcohol problems; reduce the spread of infections associated with drug use; reduce hospital admissions and increase the number of people entering employment and positively contributing to the community. The Service will be key in supporting the attainment of the Government’s goals of eradicating homelessness and Hepatitis C.
The Service will target the full spectrum of substance use problems, from ‘recreational’ drug use and lower risk alcohol consumption to severe poly-substance dependence. This broad focus will be reflected in the Service adopting and combining both the harm reduction and recovery approaches to service delivery. It is expected that the new Service will increase the level of attention given to early interventions (i.e. primary prevention).
The Service will continue to provide, within the scope of available funds, a holistic programme of treatment and support, this will include such things as support for families and carers, physical health care, mental health support, and access to training and employment programmes.
This is a fixed price contract and will be evaluated based on the quality assessment of what is to be provided.
