Last few days to have your say on #drug and #alcohol support services in #Warwickshire
Warwickshire Public Health wants the views of service users, their families and key partners within health, social care, housing, employment and the criminal justice system to help develop a new Drugs and Alcohol service. The new service will focus on delivering outcomes that positively impact on an individual’s health and well-being and on those of society as a whole.
The recovery focused drug and alcohol service will continue to support local ambitions to reduce health inequalities, support people to make positive choices to improve health, wellbeing and family functioning.
Alcohol and drug misuse are significant contributory factors towards crime and anti-social behaviour. Their relationship with victims and offenders is often complex requiring underlying issues to be addressed. It is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s intention to support the countywide partnership approach to drug and alcohol support services that focus on early intervention, reducing re-offending and sustaining recovery for both young people and adults, which should reduce the harm caused by drugs and alcohol.
The consultation seeks wide ranging views to influence and shape the proposed new Drug and Alcohol service and ensure that we appropriately direct the resources to the right people, at the right time and in the right place.
The consultation will run for six weeks from Monday 12 June until Friday 21 July 2017. During this time people will have the opportunity to find out more about the council’s proposals, and share their views.
