Substance Misuse Strategy for Wales 2008 – 2018

Working Together to Reduce Harm is the Welsh Assembly Governments 10 year strategy.

Key aims include:

  • Reducing harm to individuals, families and wider communities from the misuse of drugs and alcohol, whilst not stigmatising substance misuse;
  • Improving the availability and quality of education, prevention and treatment services and related support, with a greater priority given under previous strategy to those related to alcohol;
  • Making better use of resources – supporting evidence based decision making, improved treatment outcomes, developing the skills base of partners and service providers by giving greater focus on workforce development and joining up agencies and services more effectively in line with Making the Connections.
