Derbyshire Recovery Partnership - an integrated drug and alcohol service

From 1 April 2017, the way adult drug and alcohol services are provided across the county will be changing. For the first time, there will be an integrated drug and alcohol recovery service, led by a unique partnership called Derbyshire Recovery Partnership. The partnership brings together the skills of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, the local charity DAAS (Derbyshire Alcohol Advice Service), the national charity Phoenix Futures and the peer-led company Intuitive Thinking Skills. Together they will offer a range of innovative treatments and support, removing the need for individuals to be re-referred or transferred between drug and alcohol services. The partnership’s website will be live from 1 April, and referrals can be made from 1 April by calling 0845 308 4010 or 01246 206 514.
