EDP Drug & Alcohol Services is an experienced provider, with over 30 years™ experience of providing substance misuse interventions. EDP currently provides services across Devon and Dorset, including the prison estate, and is involved in the management of a number of integrated services. The organisation's core offer is evidence-based psychosocial & behaviour change interventions. EDP has developed a comprehensive suite of individual and group based psychosocial interventions across a broad range of domains - including substance misuse, health/wellbeing, housing/accommodation, offending behaviour, mental health (low level interventions), employment, life skills and wellbeing. EDP has worked in partnership with a number of organisations (including NHS Trusts) to deliver contracts and is well versed in critical success factors for effective partnership working.

Community Services

EDP delivers Dorset non-clinical Community Drug and Alcohol Service and works in partnership with Addaction to deliver RISE Recovery (integrated community drug and alcohol service) across Devon.

EDP also has a number of smaller contracts. An example of one of EDP's smaller contracts is 'Hidden Gems'™, a contract with Job Centre Plus. Hidden Gems supports out-of-work participants towards and into paid employment. The 13 week programme develops entrepreneurial and employment skills via an accredited Level 2 Social Enterprise Qualification (SEQ), work experience and one-to-one and group support to overcome health and wellbeing barriers to employment. Hidden Gems acts as a vehicle towards recovery, providing psychological support as part of the overarching package offered, where participants produce jewelry and other handcrafted products from recycled and reclaimed metals.

EDP manages the Integrated Substance Misuse Services, with staff working together as one team. EDP provides psychosocial staff, while the Trust provides clinical staff.
