FOI Request - Drug and Alcohol Treatment
In the years 2010/11, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16,
1 A record of whom you have commissioned to deliver drug and alcohol treatment, and what service was provided. (Please specify any instances of residential rehabilitation in the data).
2 What percentage of your drug and alcohol treatment budget has been spent on residential rehab, and from which fund or grant it has come.
3 How much from alternative budgets have been used to treat drug and alcohol addiction, and please specify the alternative budgets.
1. We have had 3 contracts in place during the timescales requested with voluntary organisations – Moray Council on Addictions 1-4-2008 to 31-3-2013; Turning Point Scotland 1-4-2008 to 1-8-2015; Quarriers 2-8-2015 to date
2.We do not actually directly commission residential facilities. These are spot purchased according to the needs of the individual. The money does not come from a grant, nor does it sit with a “treatment” budget; it is accommodated with adult social care budgets allocated to substance misuse, in conjunction with decisions made at the multi-disciplinary team.
3. The requested information can be found here - all of the funding identified contributes to the treatment of substance misuse issues- some through direct purchase of services, some through the funding of our single access point and some for core staffing in the substance misuse team.
