The provision of specific drug and treatment services is for each local area to consider, taking account of local needs, circumstances and resources. It is for individual NHS boards, local authorities and Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) to ensure that appropriate health care services are provided to meet the needs of their resident populations.
