Substance Misuse

The Council is committed to working in partnership to tackle substance misuse.  Targeting substance misuse is one of the key priorities of the Fair and Safe Partnership partners because of the obvious harm to the individual engaging in substance misuse, the harm to their families and their communities.

The substance misuse priorities are discharged on behalf of Blaenau Gwent by the Gwent Area Planning Board.  The board works across the Gwent region to reduce substance misuse through a combination of education, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.
