Drugs and alcohol consultation seeks views on new service

Leamington Editorial 26th Jun, 2017   0

VIEWS are being sought on ways to tackle drug and alcohol abuse across the county.

Warwickshire County Council has opened a consultation to hear a range of views on how best to run a new service to help those with drug and alcohol problems.

Health spokesman Coun Les Caborn said the re-think of available services followed new guidance including effectively targeting those in need, within budget.

He explained: “In consulting on drugs and alcohol services in Warwickshire, our priority is to ensure targeted support for those with the greatest need.

“The views of Warwickshire residents are central to the redesign of services which will ensure appropriate needs based support is available.”

The consultation runs until July 21. Visit warwickshire.gov.uk/ask to complete an online survey.

A report based on the feedback will be presented to the council’s ruling cabinet in September.
