Many people are concerned about drug use and alcohol use in today’s society.
The National Drugs Strategy is working to:
Protect communities by tackling drug supply, drug-related crime and anti-social behaviour
Prevent harm to children, young people and families affected by drug misuse
Deliver new approaches to drug treatment and social re-integration
Promote public awareness and community engagement
Saying that, there are still lots of problems with the use of drugs and alcohol; many of which are flagged up in the media on almost a daily basis.
New Integrated Drug and Alcohol Recovery Services
On 1st December 2018 drug and alcohol services transferred from Isle of Wight NHS Trust to ‘Inclusion’, a specialist service provider, which is part of Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
You can find out more about Inclusion at inclusion.org/services/inclusion-isle-wight Inclusion will be based at the old IRIS location at 102 Carisbrooke Rd, Newport PO30 1DB and service users will find that many staff they are familiar with have transferred to the new service which will help with continuity of care.
