Drugs SIG

The Drugs Special Interest Group seeks to:

  • Develop and advocate policies and programmes to support the delivery of FPH’s strategic plan in relation to the following specific objectives:
    - Improving access to effective, evidence-based treatment
    - Promoting and supporting long-term recovery
    - Reducing drug related deaths and other health harms

  • Identify and share good practice, emerging evidence, authoritative guidance and relevant developments in the field.

  • Act as an expert resource to FPH and its members on policies, strategies, practices, and the evidence in relation to drugs treatment, recovery and harm reduction

  • Actively collaborate with the Alcohol SIG, Mental Health SIG, other key agencies and professionals

  • Provide a forum for FPH members with an interest in this area
