Action to tackle drug misuse

29/07/2021

The government appointed Dame Carol Black as an independent advisor on drug misuse and will publish an ambitious new drug strategy later this year.

Dame Carol’s independent review on drugs exposed the scale of the challenge of illegal drug misuse and made clear that a joined-up approach across all parts of government is needed to tackle this issue. The government set out its initial response to Dame Carol’s review. The response commits to a comprehensive, whole-system approach to tackling drugs – actively disrupting criminal supply chains which fuel illegal markets, supporting people through treatment and recovery, and ridding communities of the harm drug misuse causes.
