The Drug System Change Pilots (DSCPs) were set up to test the potential to improve the way that drug treatment and related social provision were delivered by adopting more user-led, outcome-focused approaches at a regional and local level, both in prison and the community. The pilot sites were given the opportunity to test a variety of approaches during a two year period by using funding flexibilities and thinking innovatively about the commissioning, delivery and implementation of services within their region. A key element of the pilot was local innovation so the programme did not prescribe a detailed change pathway. Local areas were invited to bid for DSCP status and seven partnerships were selected as DSCPs.
