The English Substance Use Commissioners’ Group responds to the Government’s 10-year drugs strategy

Dec 7 2021

The ESUCG welcomes the announcement of the new National Drug Strategy and the commitment to increase drug and alcohol service funding, although the allocation process remains unclear. ESUCG would welcome the opportunity to work with partners across the system to ensure we maximise this opportunity and maintain local direction in how funding is used. We want to ensure that the focus and work to deliver improved outcomes for our communities is through local commissioning structures focusing on local priorities and building upon local assets. We want to ensure that individuals, families and communities are supported and protected effectively and want to further develop joined up commissioning to address the complexity, particularly where comorbidities such as mental health and substance misuse exist.
