New Nottingham Drug Treatment System Launches in January 2013
Drug treatment services in Nottingham are changing. Our aim is to reduce drug use and the harm caused by drug use to individuals, families and communities across Nottingham through the provision of a fully integrated treatment system framed around achieving sustained recovery from drug dependency.
The Nottingham Crime & Drugs Partnership has commissioned a new drug treatment system model and care pathway for Nottingham City that will maximise access to treatment, provide strong, efficient, seamless care coordination and provide personalised packages of care for each service user. An access, treatment & recovery service will be at the heart of the new treatment system providing a single point of access into treatment, high quality treatment and a recovery coordination service that works effectively with a wide range of agencies to develop and coordinate a package of care that meets each service user’s unique treatment and wider support needs.
A new family support service will also launch on 1st January to support people affected by someone else’s’ substance use.
