Drug And Alcohol Services
Drug and Alcohol Commissioning Team (DACT)
Users of mental health services may also need help to deal with drug or alcohol dependence. Drug and alcohol treatment in Sheffield is commissioned by the Drug and Alcohol Commissioning Team (DACT). The team is part of the Safer Communities Partnership, which includes partners from the Council, health, police and probation. A range of services are commissioned from both the NHS and voluntary organisations.
The DACT works closely with partners, treatment providers, service users and carers to ensure there are a range of quality services to meet the needs of Sheffield people.
