Northamptonshire County Council is running a simultaneous procurement process for Services for the Treatment of Drug and Alcohol Addictions. The detailed requirements are defined in the Specification, but please see below summary for each Lot.

LOT 1: Structured Treatment Service for adults and young people in Northamptonshire will include prescribing, OST, psychosocial interventions and responsibility for the management of the residential rehab, inpatient and ambulatory detox, shared care with GP surgeries, needle exchange, supervised consumption with pharmacies, the distribution of naloxone and foil. It will also introduce an integral mental health service capable of meeting the needs of Northamptonshire clients; provide structured treatment for young people allowing them access to the specialist resources as needed and house the re-designed single point of contact (SPOC) representing all services.
LOT 2: Recovery Service for all treatment and recovery clients in Northamptonshire will be peer based and provide an interface with structured treatment. It will host mutual treatment options and include the management of the PHaSE housing project.
LOT 3: Specialised Training Service, providing training on drug and alcohol awareness for substance misuse services for older people aged 45 and over.
LOT 4: Young People's Early Intervention Service - Services for young people with or living with problematic substance misuse will be divided into two. Those who require structured treatment (those with moderate to severe addictions) will be managed in the community by the Early Intervention service (Lot 4) with structured treatment drawn down from the all-through service (see fig.1). This configuration takes account of best practice, ensures that those who need treatment can access the best available with the interventions taking place within the young person's community environment. The Early Intervention service will comprise the larger part and will have workers embedded in clusters (schools or Early Intervention) where they will devise an appropriate prevention agenda for young people. It will support local services in the earlier identification of young people, at risk of, or substance abusing. It will provide assessment of the severity of the problem and steer the young person towards less harmful behaviours. Where the young person requires a more intensive treatment the community based early intervention service will draw down the practitioner and resources from the treatment service (Lot 1).

The service will be required from 1st April 2018 for an initial period of 4 years (up to 31st March 2022) with Lots 1, 2 and 4 having an option to extend for a further period of up to 4 years. The Authority believes that TUPE does apply to all Lots at its commencement. The deadline for completed ITTs to be received on the LGSS eTendering Portal (www.lgssprocurementportal.co.uk) is 12:00noon on Friday 3rd November 2017.
