This resource is to assist commissioners and providers of specialist adult alcohol and drug treatment services to identify the right workforce to meet the needs of their local populations. It does not address the wider role of nurses across other areas of health and social care, such as midwives, who make a significant contribution to the care of people who misuse alcohol and drugs, and their families. It outlines:

• the roles of nurses working in alcohol and drug treatment including the contribution they can make to health and social care outcomes

• the added value nurses can bring to alcohol and drug treatment

• the competences and skills that should be expected of nurses working in alcohol and drug treatment

• what is required to develop and maintain these competences
