A new service for people with drug problems is set to be run by a Sheffield NHS trust.
Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust will lead a scheme for users of opiate and non-opiate drugs from October.
Support on offer will include psychological help, medication and education to get people back into work.
Chris Wood, leading the project for the trust, said: “We are excited to have secured this business and are looking forward to providing seamless services to individuals who experience problems as a result of drug use.”
Sheffield Council’s drug and alcohol team – DACT – is ‘streamlining’ its work by offering three programmes for people hooked on drink, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, cannabis and heroin.
