The National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse has produced a new publication which gives an overview of drug treatment and recovery services in England.

‘Drug treatment in England: The road to recovery’ complements the recently released ‘Why Invest?’ presentation, which shows how investing in local drug treatment and recovery services benefits individuals, strengthens families and makes communities safer.

The brief report concludes:

The use of illegal drugs in England is declining; people who need help to overcome drug dependency are getting it quicker; and more are completing their treatment and recovering.
