Abstract/Book Review

In this article, three professionals from the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust, who have been instrumental in developing the Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) clinical model, introduce the background to this project. The FDAC model is highly dependent on a collaborative approach from local authorities, Government, the Courts, the NHS and the charitable sector, and we hope to give a flavour of that here. In addition to describing what it is that makes FDAC significantly different from other models of working, we also want to give a description of what it is like to be a social worker within the multi-disciplinary team.
