New watchdog warns government on drug rehabilitation

The watchdog made up of 40 rehab providers including the Salvation Army are warning government that they need to put some force behind their plans for supporting “drug free” rehabilitation.

The watchdog plans to name local health and council officials who are not investing in rehabilitation services that lead to a drug free life for its clients.  

The government launched its strategy to support people gaining a drug free life last year but local civil servants don’t seem to be taking the initiative seriously.
