DF Dependency and Recovery for London
The Authority has procured a Dependency and Recovery services for People on Probation due a significant proportion of
People on Probation having a dependency on legal and illegal substances and activities. The impact of this is wide-ranging both for the individual, their families and for society. Substance use disorders often cooccur alongside other mental illnesses. More than half of people with substance use disorders also have a mental illness. Frequently, each disorder amplifies the symptoms of the other. People on probation require a broad range of substance misuse and addiction related support for a range of complex needs. These services will not duplicate existing clinical commissioned services but should enhance an individual's ability to access the clinical services and support them in this need area. The service is for adult and young adult males.

The Dynamic Framework and subsequent Call-Off Competitions are conducted pursuant to Section 7 of the PCR 2015 (Social and Other Specific Services) the 'Light Touch Regime'.
The Supplier shall deliver a Dependency and Recovery Service by working in partnership with other organisations to enhance user access and support.

Where applicable, Dependency and Recovery Services must support a Person on Probation’s transition in conjunction with prison substance misuse services from Young Offenders Institute ("YOI") or an adult male prison back into the community and focus on the place where they will reside (not the prison they are released from).
