Drug strategy

Four strands of the drug strategy

The drug strategy aims to reduce the harm that drugs cause to society, to communities, individuals and their families.

The 2008-2018 drug strategy comprises four strands of work:

  • protecting communities through tackling drug supply, drug-related crime and anti-social behaviour
  • preventing harm to children, young people and families affected by drug misuse
  • delivering new approaches to drug treatment and social re-integration
  • public information campaigns, communications and community engagement
