Title: Drug System Change Pilot Scheme (DSCPs)
Summary: The Drug System Change Pilots (DSCPs) aimed to explore new approaches to drug treatment and the broader social support needs of drug users in the community, in prison and drug-using offenders leaving prison. The pilots explored whether allowing greater freedom and flexibility at a local level would encourage partnership working and the innovative use of local resources to meet the needs of drug users and their communities. After a competitive procurement process, seven areas were selected to carry out the DSCPs with each pilot adopting different aims and approaches to system change. Pilot areas were granted funding flexibilities to explore innovative new approaches. Three broad approaches to changing system structures were taken by the pilots: single provider systems, consortium based systems and improving partnership arrangements. Four broad approaches to tackling continuity of care were adopted: integrated community criminal justice system and prison drug treatment teams, an independent case manager approach, embedding CJS teams within community drug treatment services and linking roles. To create a more personalised treatment system, either a self-directed support approach, or a single point of assessment approach, was adopted. Pilot sites also took the opportunity to focus their treatment provision on recovery and reintegration. Outcomes used to evaluate the impact of the DSCPs were the proportion of service users in effective treatment and the proportion of service users who successfully completed treatment. The evaluation found, in two pilot sites defined as whole system pilots as they aimed to affect change across the whole treatment system, a positive impact in the number of service users in effective treatment when compared to comparison areas. Although there were insignificant results for two sites in terms of the proportion of service users who successfully completed treatment, the authors note that the full impact of the pilots is unlikely to be felt for some time. Four pilots focused on improving drug treatment provision for those within the CJS exclusively. Results showed that three of these sites had statistically significant negative trends in terms of the proportion in effective treatment and a longer-term follow-up may be required to determine if the trends will persist. There was no measurable impact in successful completions for three areas and a negative impact in one site. >>
