The following tools and guidance can be used by commissioners and providers as aids for needs assessment, treatment capacity, service impact and planning responses in local alcohol service delivery.

The Alcohol Systems Model is a computer simulation tool that enables commissioners / service planners to envisage the likely impact of making changes in service configuration. The model represents a geographical area equivalent to a PCT or Local Authority, with an adult population of 250k (and rising). It is capable of scaling to cover a different local, regional or national picture if required.
