Treatment and recovery

The focus of our alcohol harm reduction strategy is prevention and early intervention, however we recognise that some people will require treatment for addiction. Alcohol treatment has been shown to be highly cost effective, for every £1 spent in treatment, the public sector saves £5.

It is recognised that substance misuse services need to work closely with NHS mental health services and primary care, in order to provide effective recovery pathways for people with dual diagnoses, for example dependent drinking and long-term depression.
