'Drugs-free recovery' policy8th December 2010
The government’s new drug strategy has said that drug addicts should completely end their addictions rather than just cut their use.
Ministers said their "drugs-free recovery" policy would include former addicts mentoring current ones but the plans could see also addicts lose benefits if they do not co-operate.
Parts of the strategy will apply to the whole of the UK, but in England ministers want to set up a network of former addicts to help drug users overcome their dependency.
