A Drugs and Alcohol Needs Assessment for Children, Young People and Families of Bedfordshire
This needs assessment for Bedfordshire Drug and Alcohol Action Team (BDAT) was undertaken to inform the young people’s specialist substance misuse treatment plan, submitted to the National Treatment Agency (NTA) in January 2008. As part of this work Perpetuity assisted with treatment mapping to assess the substance misuse needs of young people in Bedfordshire and collated local documentation including service reviews, service level agreements (SLAs), local plans, strategies and inspection reports to identify strengths and weaknesses in local service provision. Although largely a desk based study, the research included some feedback from local services and young people. The report was accompanied by a national good practice review, to provide an overview of ‘what works’ in the delivery of universal, targeted and specialist drug and alcohol treatment services for children, young people and families. This was used to inform recommendations to improve the planning and delivery of young people’s substance misuse services in Bedfordshire.
