Marac toolkit for drug and alcohol services

A handy guide with template forms that explains how the process works, how to attend and how to refer

This practical toolkit has been created to support drug and alcohol professionals to:

  • understand how the Marac process works and the role their agency plays at the meeting
  • make effective referrals to Marac using the Dash risk identification checklist
  • prepare for attending a Marac meeting.

There is a high degree of overlap between the cases reviewed at Marac, and those that are known to Drug and Alcohol Services, or where these issues come to light through the information sharing process. The ability to share information and offer services that address all aspects of a victim or perpetrator’s complex needs is more likely to result in a successful outcome.

Representation from the drug and alcohol service will help other agencies at the Marac by providing information on the impact of substance misuse and how to support those involved. Other agencies attending the Marac will benefit from the expertise of drug and alcohol services with regards to ensuring the safety of clients with substance misuse issues.
