In February 2011, the UK government commissioned a sector-wide consultation on the model of care to implement the Building Recovery in Communities aim of the Drug Strategy 2010. This highlighted widespread agreement for an integrated approach to treatment and recovery support.

The key messages from the treatment field are that an integrated recovery system should focus on the following:
• Collaborative working between all partners to commission services based on outcomes
• Prompt access to appropriate interventions for drug-dependent people, including offenders
• High-quality treatment that prepares service users for recovery while protecting communities
• Encouraging service users to successfully complete treatment without putting them at risk
• Links to support networks to sustain long-term recovery and reintegrate people back into society.
