The 10-year UK Government plan to combat illegal drugs sets out how we are doing more than ever to cut off the supply of drugs by criminal gangs and give people with a drug addiction a route to a productive and drug-free life. Underpinned by record investment of over £3 billion in the next three years, we will reduce drug-related crime, death, harm and overall drug use.
National and local partners will focus on delivering three strategic priorities:
- Break drug supply chains – Home Office and Ministry of Justice
- Deliver a world-class treatment and recovery system – Department of Health and Social Care, Ministry of Justice, Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and the Department for Work and Pensions
- Achieve a generational shift in demand for drugs – Home Office, Department for Education, Department of Health and Social Care, Ministry of Justice, Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Department for Levelling Up Housing and Communities
