1 Reshaping Drug and Alcohol Treatment in Westminster Public Consultation We want to hear your views Please respond to the questionnaire by March 31 st 2009 (You can click on the below to go directly to each section) Page 2: Introduction general information Page 3: The Westminster picture Page 4: Map of current services Pages 5-7: The proposal Page 8: The commissioning process

2 Introduction Westminster Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) is jointly funded by the City Council and NHS Westminster The Key Objectives are: 1. Reducing the supply of illegal drugs 2. Preventing young people from becoming drug misusers 3. Reducing drug-related crime 4. Reducing the use of drugs through increased participation in treatment programmes Westminster DAAT are one of the top performing DAATs in the Country. It successfully manages to retain 85% of individuals in treatment for twelve weeks or more. This measure is regarded as an indicator of effective treatment. The DAAT is responsible for the commissioning of all treatment services, including those that sit within the Drugs Intervention Programmed (DIP), and actively monitors and reports on performance and communicates with stakeholders Why Provide Substance Misuse Treatment? Drug and Alcohol misuse wastes Lives, destroys families and damages communities It is estimated that 1 spent on treatment saves 9.50 on cost associated with drugs such health and crime 1 Substance Misuse is an issue which has an impact on society as a whole but disproportionately affects the most deprived communities, disadvantaged families and vulnerable individuals Recent Home Office Study shows providing treatment to drug users has resulted in a 60% decrease in criminal behaviour 2 Evidence shows that providing individuals with a counsellor and access to groups help them to stabilise and reduce their substance use Treatment can often be the service that links chaotic individuals to wider support services such as Debt and Housing Advice, Health Services, Education and Training 1) Godfrey C, Stewart D, and Gossop M (2004) Economic analysis of costs and consequences of the treatment of drug misuse: 2-year outcome data from National Drug Treatment Outcome Research Study (NTORS). Addiction, 99(6) pp ) Research Briefing RB35 Nov 08 see link

3 The Westminster Picture Westminster has approx 3500 Crack and/or Heroin User 3 Currently 35% of those (1200) attend structured treatment The target is to get all into effective treatment It is estimated that over of Westminster s population are drinking to hazardous levels It is estimated 6% that (6156) of men in Westminster and 2% (2054) of women are dependent on Alcohol 4 Currently there are approximately 400 Alcohol users attending structured treatment Our challenge is to attract more dependent drug and alcohol users into treatment Current Treatment Model Currently Westminster Commission drug and alcohol services separately. With 5 main providers offering services out of 9 sites across the North and Centre of the City. Services offer Westminster residents treatment such as counselling and group work as well as substitute prescribing for heroin users. A number of treatment agencies provide harm reduction services such as needle exchange and health checks. Drug and Alcohol services are located separately from one another, with direct access Alcohol support being provided from a service located in Kensington and Chelsea called the Alcohol Resource Centre. A vast majority of service users accessing treatment are poly users, using a number of different substances, including mixing alcohol with illicit drugs such as crack and heroin. 3) Estimates of the prevalence of opiate use and/or crack cocaine use (2006/07) London Region Dr Hay etal 4) Alcohol Needs Assessment Research Project The prevalence of alcohol dependence in England is estimated by the ANARP as 3.6%; 6% of men and 2% women. Applying this to Westminster would suggest that there are 8,210 dependent drinkers;

Family Therapy Centre- Elksotne Road

5 The Proposal Westminster DAAT are committed to identifying problem substance misusers, get them into treatment, drive down drug use and the associated costs We are proposing to retender existing services and commission new treatment provision The DAAT have developed this proposal in collaboration with Council Members and our partners in the Police, Community Protection and Probation There will be a move from 9 treatment centres across the Centre and North of the City to 5 with a focus on offering services that are accessible to all The Centres will be split into North and South contracts, with Oxford Street/ Bayswater Road being the line that separates the 2 halves Drug and Alcohol Treatment will be integrated, offering free expert treatment regardless of the substance Services will be available 7 days a week, with rapid access to the right support All Structured Services will be delivered solely to Westminster residents and verified Westminster rough sleepers The Treatment System will be designed with robust enforcement measures in place for those engaging as part of a community order It will offer prompt and direct access to support for individuals to work towards a substance free life including individual counselling, group work, substitute prescribing, referral into detox and residential treatment There will be a focus on supporting substance misusing parents breaking the cycle of problems being transferred between the generations, working alongside the Family Recovery Project With an emphasis on working with Employment and Training Organisations and Job Centre Plus to get Users off benefits

6 Why Propose a Change? There are currently no Drug or Alcohol Treatment facilities In the South of the City More Drug treatment than Alcohol The proposal will provide an opportunity to Integrate the two Equal Access to treatment across the City There is currently no Open Access Service for Alcohol Users in Westminster- Service Users have to go to Kensington And Chelsea Changing Trends in Drug Use with Increased Crack and Alcohol prevalence There has been a change in National focus toward getting people through treatment and into work- Need for clearer pathways through the system There a re currently 35% of Westminster s Problem Drug Users (heroin and/or crack cocaine) in treatment. New and improved services are needed to attract more The current system is too complicated; Service Users Drop Out Before Completion A 3 year needs analysis has been carried out, outlining where needs are not being met The New Model Location Westminster Drug and Alcohol Action Team (WDAAT) are proposing to redesign treatment services with 2 centres in the North, 2 in the South and a small referral service based in Soho. The 2 centres are: Neighbourhood Centres, providing the first port of call for all dependent drug and alcohol users wanting treatment Structured Intervention Centres where those stable and ready to move into education and/or employment will access support to do this. West End Referral Centre will be a signposting service offering brief advice and information of where to get help The sites are not yet known. Organisations bidding for the contracts will be putting forward properties that fit the design specification developed by the Council. All properties will be subject to Planning consent and consultation with the relevant neighbourhoods.

8 The Commissioning Process Following consultation we plan to go to open tender for new services during 2009 Detailed service Specifications are being developed and will be available to anyone who wishes to view them Expert providers to bid for new service and they will be required to propose location Invite representatives from key partners and service users to be part of interview process DAAT Partners including Community Protection and Met Police to consult residents and work in partnership to address the concerns raised throughout the process Service Specifications request centres offer space to accommodate Local Community Groups Bidding Providers will need to demonstrate how they will communicate with the community, offering regular liaison meetings New service due to open 1 st Sept 2010
