  • Moving Forward
  • Mike Jarman DAAT Alcohol Commissioner
  • Andy Maguire- Alcohol Service Manager

SBI from March 07- March 08
  • Pilot Study Carried out by University of
    Plymouth, findings Published July 2008A Barton,
    G Squires http//

Headline Findings
  • 3900 Contacts made (AUDIT completed).
  • Over 50 of contacts with 17-24 year olds
  • Gender 85 Male 15 Female
  • 52 of 3900 accessed the main service (no
    definition of accessed provided).
  • No Re-Offending data shared

Funding Ends For Pilot March 2009
  • Harbour brings the SBI in house as part of
    alcohol service
  • It is reduced to weekends only (Pilot had shown
    this was optimum contact time)
  • Weekday contacts carried out by Custody Drug

Who is now seen?

  • - offence motivated in some way by alcohol
  • OR
  • - offender intoxicated at time of arrest
  • OR
  • offender asks to see alcohol worker
  • OR
  • offender referred by medical provision.

Figures from Jan 09-Nov 09
  • 1315 seen so far
  • Over 50 17-24 Year Olds
  • 86 Male 14 Female
  • 23 attended Main Agency for Assessment
  • 13 Opened a Care Plan
  • No Data regarding re-offending, whether locally
    or regionally is currently shared.

  • The only outcome measure available currently is
    whether or not person comes into more structured
    treatment (98 do not).
  • No capacity currently to run follow up programmes
    to measure efficacy in consumption reduction, or
    to cross check data between health and police to
    evidence crime reduction.

How do you measure success?
  • Objectives should be broader than getting into
    treatment i.e. a reduction in alcohol related
    re-offending, but also
  • More holistic approach should perhaps include
    substance misuse, access to other services such
    as health checks, training and educational needs,
    and addressing issues around accommodation and
    family substance misuse.

What is Needed in Plymouth?
  • A joined-up approach is required. We need to
    agree data sharing with Police and other partners
    to track people through systems, and measure the
    efficacy of interventions and services.
  • Clear pathway needs to be defined for alcohol
    linked offenders with data managed within HALO,
    our electronic case management software.
  • Pathway would include SBI, ATRs, alcohol
    interventions treatment delivered by probation
    service, through to resettlement of offenders.

What Are We Doing?
  • Currently have drawn together a 15 strong project
    group from Commissioning, Public Health, Criminal
    Justice, and Treatment Delivery strata to review
    and redesign the Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy
    for Plymouth.
  • Our first meeting has identified a priority need
    for the sharing and harvesting of data that more
    clearly informs Public Health Needs Assessment,
    supports the development of services aligned to
    the Safer Communities and Safeguarding agendas,
    and measures the community response to these

What Are We Doing?
  • It is envisioned that the review of the Harm
    Reduction Strategy will lead to the
    implementation of a whole system for alcohol
    intervention that can encompass Health, Community
    Safety, and Safeguarding objectives, with high
    quality shared data as one of its foundations.

How Will It Be Done?
