Chair of WDP Yasmin Batliwala comments in The Sun

Following the release of new figures by NHS Direct indicating that increasing numbers of people are being hospitalised following illicit drug poisoning, our Chair, Yasmin Batliwala comments in The Sun,  "It is deeply troubling to see these figures rising even though general use of illicit drugs is falling. It highlights more than ever that the government needs to direct greater efforts towards treatment, prevention and evidence based interventions to ensure that less lives are needlessly ruined and lost through substance misuse.”
