Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT)

Drug and alcohol key aims

The two key aims of the new National Drugs Strategy are to:

  1. Reduce illicit and other harmful drug use
  2. Increase the numbers recovering from dependence

These key aims will be achieved through the following themes:

• Reducing demand
• Restricting supply
• Building recovery in communities

The strategy puts the ambition for recovery at its heart and the focus will not only be to get people into treatment, but to get them successfully sustained in full recovery.
