The government today announced the next tranche of drug strategy funding for treatment and recovery services.

The funding amounts to £154.3 million for 2023/2024, and indicative funding of £266.7 million for 2024/2025.

Collective Voice Chair Lea Milligan said:

In 2021 the 10-year drug strategy “From Harm to Hope” heralded a significant step change for the treatment and recovery system. We are now over a year on and, despite the challenges of the last 12 months, the strategy is beginning to make a difference.

We welcome the government today continuing to unlock new investment to support people facing substance misuse, who are amongst our communities’ most vulnerable and stigmatised members. Now is the time to press on with the transformational, whole-system approach advocated by Dame Carol Black and set in motion by the drug strategy.”
