This case study describes how the Staffordshire Drug & Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) partnership re-commissioned their young people's substance misuse service in 2006–07. The study focuses on how stakeholders were involved in service design and how competitive tendering was used to capture innovative working models. The scope of the new services commissioned includes Tier 2 and 3 drug and alcohol services and a countywide family support service for children and young people with an increasingly complex range of needs. The approach outlined in this case study is transferable to other targeted and specialist services.
