Inclusion was established in 2002 as part of the specialist directorate of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The specialist directorate develop new, flexible, services locally and nationally, delivered by NHS clinical and psycho-social care specialists in areas where tendering opportunities arise. Inclusion has thrived within this environment and this has resulted in an impressive network of community, residential and prison based services which link health and social care responses to service user and criminal justice needs.
Although Inclusion\'s headquarters are in Staffordshire we provide services for drug users from the Isle of Wight, Wiltshire, through the Home Counties, Middlesex and on to the West Midlands. With this broad geographical base we view Inclusion as a local provider of services both in the South and the Midlands.
Inclusion also provides psychological therapy services (IAPT) to the people of Liverpool, Sefton and the Wirral.
Inclusion has extensive experience of working in partnership with the Prison Service, Drug Action Teams, Crime Reduction Partnerships, Primary Healthcare Trusts, the Probation Service, Drug Intervention Programmes, housing and employment organisations and third sector services.
As our name suggests, Inclusion Drug Alcohol Services is an organisation which has developed to provide respectful services that meet the recovery needs of people however marginalised they are from society, irrespective of the complexity of their needs and their personal circumstances. The spirit of inclusion is that service users should be fully included and integrated into systems for service design, service development and quality assurance.
