Drug and alcohol treatment services commissioning

What we want to know

Through the Public Health Grant from the Government, we pay for specialist organisations to deliver adult drug and alcohol treatment services to those people in South Gloucestershire who are affected by the harms caused by drugs and alcohol. We are nearing the end of our contract with our current providers which gives us an opportunity to review our services and to identify what works, what could be changed and where there may be gaps.

We have completed engagement events with service users, staff and professionals and have used the feedback from these to shape how we believe services should be delivered in the new contract.

We would now like feedback on our proposed model for delivering drug and alcohol services.

Share your views

We are particularly keen to hear from individuals who are impacted by drug and alcohol use:

  • Individuals who have used treatment services
  • Individuals who have not used treatment services but may benefit from support for their drug and alcohol use
  • Families and carers of people who are impacted by drug and alcohol use
  • Professionals with experience of working alongside individuals with drug and alcohol issues
  • Individuals who feel that they belong to a community that has an under-represented voice.

How your feedback will be used

Your views will help us to develop our services. Specifically, your feedback will help guide decisions around:

  • Whether we should focus most of our resources on recovery-based interventions, such as mental health support and skills for life
  • If there are areas of treatment & recovery that we have not considered
  • If our proposed model supports our aim to reduce inequalities particularly for those with protected characteristics
  • How services can be best deployed to support families and carers

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
