Drug and alcohol key aims
The two key aims of the new National Drugs Strategy are to:
- Reduce illicit and other harmful drug use
- 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.
