Blenheim regularly publishes research and reports on the subject of drug and alcohol treatment. We feel strongly about the importance of developing addiction policy and treatment in the UK and reducing the stigma surrounding alcohol and substance misuse problems in our society.

Drug and Alcohol Education, Training and Employment Evaluation
Blenheim has published an evaluation of the drug and alcohol Education, Training and Employment service it provides in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The report contains key messages from service users about their needs and the barriers they face in gaining employment.
Evaluation of CASA Family Service (CFS)
The CASA Family Service was set up in Islington in 2006. Its purpose was to respond to increasing concerns over the health and wellbeing of children whose parents were struggling with alcohol and other drug problems. In 2011, to look at the impact of the service, the CFS underwent a formal evaluation from the University of Bedfordshire. The report evaluates its work in relation to domestic abuse and multi agency working and includes testimony from a range of service users and partner agencies.
Making Research Work: How Blenheim hosted a Successful Contingency Management Research Project
South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) were able to complete the first ever Contingency Management (CM) research project in the UK by entering into a two year research partnership with Blenheim. This research analyses the relationship between CM and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the UK.
The paper, produced in advance of the academic research, identifies the critical success factors for delivering a meaningful research partnership. It details how Blenheim has been able to create an optimal environment for the research to thrive whilst delivering our mainstream commissioned services.
Good Practice within Stimulant Services
This independent review examines the practice of Blenheim and attempts to learn from our history of work with this population. The review uses a combination of description and analysis to identify features of good practice and to capture the learning that is now embedded within Blenheim’s services.
