Hayden Duncan Regional Manager National Treatment Agency 1 for Substance Misuse
National Drug Strategy 2010 We will create a recovery system that focuses not only on getting people into treatment and meeting process-driven targets, but getting them into full recovery and off drugs and alcohol for good. It is only through this permanent change that individuals will cease offending, stop harming themselves and their communities and successfully contribute to society.
Less than 1 in 10 heroin users will complete treatment successfully in year 1. A quarter have been in treatment more than 4 years More than 50% of DIP clients are currently or previously known to treatment A quarter will return to treatment within a year 40% live with their children Economic (and politics!) will dictate that treatment systems deliver far more than a crime reduction yield and modest health improvements.
