Substance Misuse Annual Report & Forward Look 2017 Released
Welsh Government has published the latest edition of the Substance Misuse Annual Report including a Forward look report for 2017.
Originally developed in 2008, ‘Working together to Reduce Harm’ has been a ‘close collaboration with a variety of stakeholders including service users and underpinned by the principles of prudent health and care’.
The latest delivery plan aims to strengthen that approach through an even greater emphasis on prevention, early
intervention, integration and long term sustainability.
Contained within the Delivery Plan are a number of key actions and desirable outcomes captured under a broad range of aims, including:
- – Preventing Harm
- – Support for Substance Misusers to improve their health and aid and maintain recovery
- – Supporting and Protecting Families
- – Tackling Availability and protecting individuals and communities via enforcement activity
- – Delivering the strategy and supporting partner agencies
