Darlington Drugs and Alcohol Consultation

Darlington Borough Council has a responsibility to provide prevention, treatment and support services for residents who are at risk of misusing drugs and alcohol or who already have addiction issues. The services are not provided directly by the Council, but they have a contract with other organisations to deliver them. The Council is currently reviewing services and wants to make sure that future services continue to meet the needs of the residents of Darlington.

There is a survey to ask for the views of residents and this can be found by following this link: –
