Recovery focused treatment services

  • Enable accessible and effective support for a wide range of drug related needs (e.g. opiates, crack, and powder cocaine through to marijuana, new psychoactive substances and performance enhancing drugs)
  • Provide effective solutions when working with clients who have been in long-term treatment (i.e. over four years)
  • Work closely with NHS mental health services and primary care, in order to provide effective recovery pathways for people with dual diagnoses
  • Work in close partnership with other health and non-health organisations and agencies to provide an effective and co-ordinated response to drug related harm
  • Fully implement relevant NICE guidance and Quality Standards
  • Ensure effective referral pathways are in place across partner organisations, agencies and local communities
  • Provide a community-based needle exchange scheme and encourage people who are injecting drugs to take tests for tuberculosis and blood infections, e.g. hepatitis, as recommended in NICE guidance

Recovery is more likely to be achieved and sustained if clients are supported to improve their 'recovery capital' (the personal and material resources that help a person establish and maintain their recovery from substance misuse). Partner organisations need to consider how to increase the availability of long-term housing and employment opportunities for clients on recovery programmes.
