In response to the Drugscope report 'State of the Sector 2013', Selina Douglas, Managing Director for Substance Misuse and Offending at Turning Point said;

"The substance misuse field is not static and this overview of the current state of the sector is very welcome. The report highlights the ongoing importance of engagement between service providers and new NHS structures such as Health and Wellbeing Boards, as well as emphasising the need for a more integrated response to support individual's specific needs.

The report also highlights the changing nature of drug use, identifying legal highs and alcohol as an increasing problem. As providers we need to continually adapt to this changing landscape to ensure we are providing the right support for our clients with a focus on sustained recovery."
