Outcome definitions agreed for drugs recovery pilot bids

Detailed definitions that should be used in measuring outcomes from pilots relating to the drug and alcohol payment by results initiative have been agreed and finalised. The definitions have resulted from successful partnership working between central government, the pilot areas, experts from the field and wider comments from the sector. There are detailed definitions for the following high level outcomes: free from drug(s) of dependence; offending; health and wellbeing. With the outcome domains finalised, each pilot site has provided a progress update report summarising any development in their vision during co-design. These will be updated on a monthly basis and will outline the key actions for achieving the vision.
