Share this

The first part of Dame Carol Black’s review of drugs, published in February 2020, looked at the challenges posed by drug supply and demand, including the ways in which drugs fuel serious violence.

On drug treatment, the first part of the review acknowledged the significant, long-term cuts to funding, and recommended a renewed focus on accountability in the system.

The second part of the review, launched in July 2020, focusses on prevention, treatment and recovery. It will:

‘make policy recommendations to government, including on what level of service provision is required and on what commissioning and accountability mechanisms should be put in place, to make sure that these services are effective and succeed in preventing, treating and supporting recovery from drug problems.’
