In our massive 40-pages we lead this month on the Government’s cross-departmental Drugs Strategy, published last month that marks a significant and welcome shift in the landscape for treatment and recovery. Not only does the Strategy recognise addiction as a chronic health condition, but it takes on board all of the recommendations from Dame Carol Black’s independent review of drugs, including a £780 million funding boost for treatment and wider recovery support following almost a decade of disinvestment.
