Consultation on the drug section of the Surrey Substance Misuse Strategy

Closed 11 May 2015

Opened 11 Feb 2015


This draft substance misuse strategy is being developed to prevent and reduce social and physical harm caused by substance misuse in Surrey. We want to offer every support to make drug taking less accessible and desirable, and to enable and motivate people to fully recover from drug dependancy.

The Surrey Substance Misuse Partnership Group has developed this draft strategy through collecting views from service users and providers of support and treatment, looking at local and national data about people’s needs, and evidence of what has worked best in areas similar to ours.

Why we are consulting

We are committed to working together with our partners including service users, families and the community, to make this strategy the best it can be for our population. Individuals do not take drugs in isolation from what is happening in the rest of their lives, the causes and drivers of drug and alcohol dependence are complex and personal. The solutions need to be holistic and centred around each individual, with the expectation that full recovery is possible and desirable.

That’s why your contributions and opinions are so important and valued and will enable local communities to support more individuals to become free of their dependence and contribute to society. So we would be really grateful if you could take the time to fill in this survey (it should only take about 5 minutes).

If you have more to say or other ideas to add, you can come along to drop in sessions or focus groups to meet us. 

Leave your email address at the end of the survey and we will be in touch.
