Submission to the Substance Misuse Strategy for Wales

This short paper provides  key points relating specifically to the Welsh strategy consultation strategy: ‘Working Together to Reduce Harm.’

The new strategy covers substance misuse, including illicit drugs, alcohol, volatile substances and prescription only and over-the-counter medicines. Whilst the UK Drug Policy Commission is primarily concerned with illicit drugs and this is our focus in this paper, we welcome a strategy that seeks to address all substance misuse.

The overall focus on reducing harm is welcomed as it is well supported by the evidence, as is the emphasis on making support for substance misusers the ‘cornerstone’ of the strategy.
