Drugs

What we do:

  • Reduce the supply of drugs in Newcastle and increase the number of people recovering from drug use to stop the harm and impact of drugs.
  • Work with different drug treatment services to offer a variety of services and support for adults and young people, for example day care, rehabilitation and prescribing drug substitutes.
  • Offer a support service for families and carers affected by their loved ones substance misuse.
  • Support the Newcastle User and Carer Forum, giving people who have accessed drug treatment, or are still using it, involvement in decisions and access to support and advice.
  • Deliver a whole range of training and workforce development for workers, service users and carers and education events with students.
