DAA Members may be interested to know the DWP has launched a Call for Evidence on Addictions and Obesity, for contributions from anyone who has experience as an addict, as well as individuals, or organisations providing support or treatment, and individual caseworker testimony.
They are particularly interested in how individuals were able to break their addiction:
- What were the factors that made individuals stop?
- What support was available when they made the decision to stop?
- Any information about the treatment received would be gratefully accepted and how individuals have since managed to avoid relapsing.
You can find out more or submit a response to the Call for Evidence on the Gov.uk website.
Closing date for contributions is 11th September 2015.
