Reducing drugs misuse and dependence ( article)

Between 2011 and 2012, an estimated 8.9% of adults used an illegal drug. For young people aged between 16 and 24, the figure was 19.3%. Although this is the lowest level of drug use since we started collecting figures in 1996, drug misuse continues to have a negative effect on the health, wellbeing and quality of life of too many people.
It also drains public resources. For example, crimes related to drugs cost the UK 13.3 billion every year.
