NICE Drug Misuse Prevention
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence have produced a guidline covering drug misuse prevention in people who are most likely to start using drugs or who are already experimenting or using drugs occasinally. The guideline makes recommendations on interventions targeting groups at risk that aim to: prevent or delay drug use; prevent people moving on to other drugs; prevent people moving from using drugs occasionally to using them regularly. We will respond to the consultation to ensure that LGBT people, as a group at risk of drug use, are included and considered within the guidance.
Deadline Wednesday 7th September 2016
