Key findings
• The commissioning of alcohol services is generally seen to be a rigorous and transparent process, but is also time-consuming and anxiety provoking
• Local authorities are under pressure to both meet efficiency savings requirements and to make improvements to their local alcohol service systems
• Common system developments include integration of different service types, redesign of treatment models, enhanced system co-ordination and increased opportunities for peer workers, however, the effect of these developments requires monitoring
