The Welsh Government has announced a new plan aimed at tackling substance misuse.
The three-year Substance Misuse Delivery Plan means there will be more training for health professionals dealing with new psychoactive substances and surveillance work to understand the scale and nature of performance enhancing drug use.
The plan also includes:
- Work to reduce blood-borne virus transmission amongst people with substance misuse problems
- Communications work to ensure more older people understand the health risks of substance misuse
- Increased collaboration between services so that people living with both mental health and substance misuse problems receive co-ordinated and effective support
