ACMD accepting written evidence on naloxone provision and young people’s drug use

The ACMD is accepting written submissions of evidence until 30 June on two topics:

  • Young people’s drug use
  • Naloxone provision

On young people’s drug use, the ACMD is interested to hear about:

  • prevalence and nature of drug use among young people
  • evidence of effective treatment
  • descriptions of interventions or treatment models being used
  • how responses could be improved
  • case studies of note

On naloxone provision, the ACMD is interested to hear about:

  • prevalence and nature of naloxone provision, carriage and use
  • evidence of effectiveness of naloxone provision in different settings
  • evidence of who is administering naloxone (police, voluntary services, etc.)
  • barriers to uptake of naloxone (both intramuscular and intranasal naloxone)
  • evidence of collaborative approaches to provision
  • case studies of note

We encourage individuals and organisations across the drug and alcohol field to make submissions to the ACMD’s work – forms are available on the ACMD website.

Collective Voice will be submitting evidence to both workstreams and we are inviting stakeholders to feed in information as part of our submission. We have set up Slack channels for both topics on the ‘Making a Difference Together’ Slack group and we welcome people’s input on that channel.

Alternatively, you can email CV’s Campaigns Officer, Peter Keeling peter@collectivevoice.org.uk.

It’s important that our submission is informed by the expertise of people working on these issues at the frontline, as well as people with lived experience, so please do get in touch if you have evidence on the above topics that we can include.
