Warwickshire Drug Treatment and Alcohol Treatment Needs Assessments 2011/12 – Full Assessments Published

The Observatory has been working closely with Warwickshire Drug and Alcohol Action Team (WDAAT) to produce their annual needs assessments for both alcohol treatment and drug treatment. This year was the first time that the Observatory have produced the assessments as WDAAT felt it was important to examine a wider breadth of demographic and socio-economic information, along with the application of a customer insight approach within the analysis.

The needs assessments focus on the current picture of both drug related issues and alcohol related issues in the county including health and crime and disorder. Several surveys were conducted with practitioners and treatment providers and the analysis from this consultation is included within the assessments. Reducing both alcohol and drug related harm is a priority for health and community safety partners in Warwickshire and the findings and recommendations in the assessments with help to inform partners, particularly the Drugs and Alcohol Management Group, and assist with planning for the future.

The assessment also forms part of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, the purpose of which is to analyse and examine the current and future health and well-being needs of the local population, to inform and guide the commissioning of health, well-being and social care services.
