  • Published: Wednesday, 25 August 2010

New Drug Strategy 2010

A new strategy on drugs: what are your views?

The government plans to publish a new Drug Strategy in December 2010.

The Home Office website is hosting a consultation. They aim to get an advance picture, from a wide range of partners, of what people think about this issue. Those concerned as partners include:

  • charities
  • enforcement partners
  • drug workers
  • voluntary and community sector organisations

Your response as a member of the public or a concerned individual is also welcome. You can feed in your thoughts to government by following the link below.

How the consultation is structured

The questions in the consultation are presented around four key themes, led by particular government departments. The themes are as follows:

  • preventing drug use (Department for Education)   
  • strengthening enforcement, criminal justice and legal framework (Home Office and Ministry of Justice)
  • rebalancing treatment to support drug-free outcomes (Department of Health)
  • supporting recovery to break the cycle of drug addiction (Department for Work and Pensions)

You can respond to just the area of interest to you, or to all these sections, as you prefer.
