The focus of this government is firmly on delivery. We are establishing a new Drugs Strategy Delivery Commission and have published a new framework for action on alcohol and drugs. We are setting up a Scottish Drugs Recovery Consortium whose role will be to advocate, catalyse and lobby for recovery to be the mainstay of drug services. Frontline services are also benefiting from an 18% increase in funding since 2006-07, and for the first time we are developing a national HEAT target that will offer people with drug problems faster access to a range of appropriate drug services to promote recovery.
