Details

This commissioning support guidance will help commissioners and local authorities develop joint strategic needs assessment and health and wellbeing strategies to reduce the harm caused by smoking, drinking, substance use and misuse in both adults and children.

The guidance covers planning for:

  • alcohol harm prevention, treatment and recovery in adults
  • drugs prevention, treatment and recovery in adults
  • substance misuse interventions for young people
  • local smoking and tobacco control interventions

For each of these topics, there are a set of good practice principles and indicators or questions to help local areas assess need and plan and commission effective services and interventions.

PHE centre teams send local authorities their bespoke data to help them commission effective services and interventions.
