The NHS Substance Misuse Provider Alliance started in 2016 as a group of peers from NHS organisations throughout England who currently provide drug and alcohol treatment services. The reason we came together was a joint belief that as a group we will be more effective in positively contributing to the drug and alcohol treatment sector.
The Alliance currently includes eleven NHS trusts from across England has committed itself to the following aim:
We are an alliance of NHS drug and alcohol treatment providers who working collaboratively with service users, carers and other organisations are committed to contributing positively to the on-going development of the substance misuse field.
As NHS treatment providers we are keen that our historical knowledge, along with the innovative practices we have employed is not lost to the treatment field. Our aim is to ensure that we achieve this through:
- Contributing our expertise and resources to the government’s and sectors drug and alcohol policy development.
- Contributing to the development of academic research with the aim of positively contributing to developments in the sector.
- Ensuring that the voice of service users and carers who use our services are represented.
- Working collaboratively with other organisations and stakeholders across and connected to the drug and alcohol treatment sector.
The Alliance is chaired by Danny Hames of Inclusion, part of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
