Tackling substance misuse is a complex issue because its effects are broad ranging and not always visible for all to see.
What do we do about Substance Misuse in Carmarthenshire?
There is no single solution or source of activity that will bring immediate results. Success can only be achieved when agencies, supported by the community, work in partnership to provide long term, sustainable treatment provision.
We work across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire & Carmarthenshire as part of an Area Planning Board to meet our strategic aims in addressing substance misuse.
We deliver a range of services for across Carmarthenshire provided in partnership between Carmarthenshire County Council, Hywel Dda Health Board, Wales Probation Trust & the Third Sector.
