Welsh Government unveils new plan to ta ckle harms caused by substance misuse

A new plan to tackle the harms caused by “legal highs” and risky drinking behaviours has been unveiled by the Welsh Government. The three-year ‘Working together to reduce harm: Delivery plan 2016 – 2018’ sets out how the Welsh Government, the NHS and other organisations will tackle the impact of substance misuse. It includes continuing to reduce the number of drug and alchohol-related deaths in Wales, which have fallen steadily since 2010. There has been a reduction in the number of alcohol-related deaths since 2010 and waiting times for people accessing treatment services over the last five years have also improved. The plan is subject to a 12 week consultation which will end on March 30.
