Warwickshire Drug and Alcohol Treatment Needs Assessment 2012/13 published

Front cover 2012-13The Observatory has been working with Warwickshire Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) to produce their annual needs assessments for both alcohol treatment and drug treatment.

This needs assessment focuses on alcohol and drug use among adults in Warwickshire. It presents:

  • The current picture in terms of the drinking and drug using population in the County and considers a broad range of alcohol and drug related issues including treatment services, health, crime and wraparound and recovery services.
  • The recovery needs and gaps including outcomes from the analysis of the recovery needs of treatment clients in Warwickshire (conducted through a survey with treatment providers and practitioners).
  • An analysis using the recovery assets approach to drugs and alcohol which considers the assets within a community rather than the needs or gaps in services.
  • Emerging issues from the consultation and areas for further exploration
  • Conclusions and recommendations

This assessment is designed to inform the Warwickshire Alcohol and Drugs Implementation Plans and assist the Drugs and Alcohol Management Group in future targeting and planning.

The assessment also forms part of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, which examines 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.

Warwickshire Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) and the Warwickshire Observatory would like to thank the partners and providers who have contributed to the production of this needs assessment.

Please find below the full report as well as the recommendations and key findings in a separate document:
