Alcohol Scoping Study 2005

Project: Other


An examination of provision throughout Lancashire.

In light of the fact that the North West Region suffers disproportionately high incidences of alcohol related harms, the Alcohol Scoping Study is primarily designed for those involved in planning, commissioning and managing support and treatment services for people with alcohol problems. Data obtained from consultation with service providers during the scoping exercise can be used by Lancashire Drug Action Team as a tool to assess the extent that it is incorporating and integrating 'alcohol' within its current remit.

From service provider feedback and knowledge shared by a range of partners and agencies across county in the alcohol treatment sector the report highlights particular service gaps, related structural and financial constraints preventing service growth and development, and the location of Service Provision within wider MoCAM Framework. With this in mind, the findings from the scoping exercise aim to bring Lancashire Drug Action Team up to date about existing services in the alcohol field and facilitate the commissioning, development and implementation of improvements, and where necessary, additional services to fill the gaps to reduce the negative impacts of alcohol use across Lancashire County.
