'Drugs-free recovery' policy

8th 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.
