Opportunity for inclusion onto an approved list for drug & alcohol residential rehabilitation services

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council along with Thurrock Council, are inviting expressions of interest
from experienced rehab providers for inclusion onto the Council’s Approved Providers’ List for the
provision of Drug & Alcohol Residential Rehabilitation services.
The aim of this service is to ensure that people with drug &/or alcohol addictions are supported in
a way which enables them to:
• Achieve lasting recovery from drug and / or alcohol dependence
• Develop the skills required to reintegrate into their community

We are seeking a range of Providers that can deliver rehab services including, but not limited to,
women only services, for people with a dual diagnosis, for those with an alcohol only problem and
those with extensive and current involvement in the criminal justice system, as well as more
‘mainstream’ Drug & Alcohol rehab services.

Supporting both Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock Councils’ ambitions to increase choice for
individuals and promoting the self directed support initiative, this Approved List will ensure that
service users and their families are provided with a choice of experienced and quality assured care
providers across the country.

It is envisaged that a maximum of 12 providers will be invited onto the Approved List which will
commence on 1st October 2015 and expire on 30th September 2017. Current levels of rehabilitation
service referrals equate to approximately £280k per annum.
If you wish to be considered for invitation onto this Approved List, please register on

Closing date for document requests is 12.00 noon on Friday 3rd April 2015.

Completed Approved List documents must be submitted by 12.00 noon on Friday 17th April 2015.
