The first annual review of the Drug Strategy 2010 - ‘Reducing demand, restricting supply, building recovery: supporting people to live a drug-free life’, has been released by the Home Office.

Launched in 2010, the review gives an update on the progress of the strategy and also includes a section on new psychoactive substances (NPS), also known as legal highs. Emphasis is being placed on giving greater assistance to individuals by encouraging them to seek help to overcome dependency.
