Hampshire Integrated Adult Substance Misuse Recovery Service – Information Day





The Hampshire Operational Model for Effective Recovery (HOMER) is a recovery-orientated, integrated-care approach to tackling adult drug and alcohol treatment misuse and its harms which, since its inception on 2011, has proved effective in securing sustained recovery for drug and alcohol misusing clients and in delivering support for their carers and families.

Hampshire County Council (HCC) wishes to re-commission the key specialist treatment functions of the HOMER system as part of an integrated countywide provision encompassing treatment tiers 2,3 and 4 and specialist carers’ support.  The service will work closely with our Substance Misuse Social Work Team, the Hampshire Supporting Troubled Families Programme, Integrated Offender Management Service, our Pharmacy-based Drug Treatment Service and other health and social care partner agencies and mutual aid groups to deliver an holistic and managed pathway from engagement through to aftercare which secures improvements in the following key result areas:


  • levels of engagement;
  • levels of recovery capital;
  • levels of successful completions for drug and alcohol clients
  • value for money


Hampshire County Council is seeking to commission this integrated county-wide service in June 2014. Further detail will be published at this time.

The upcoming tender will be advertised on the Councils’ electronic tendering website ‘In Tend.’ To register on ‘In Tend’ please go to https://in-tendhost.co.uk/hampshire

The deadline for reserving a place at the event is Friday 30th May 2014. Attendance is limited to two representatives per organisation and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
