'Drugs: protecting families and communities' - 2008

The drug strategy aims to restrict the supply of illegal drugs and reduce the demand for them. It focuses on protecting families and strengthening communities.

The four main strands of work are: 

  • protecting communities through robust enforcement to tackle 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

Please note that the hard copy version of this strategy also includes a copy of the first action plan.
