In 2010, Adfam released a Manifesto (pdf) to set out 5 key challenges for supporting families affected by drugs and alcohol. This review (pdf) looks back at the issues identified in the Manifesto and what has changed since last year's general election as budget cuts begin to take effect and the policy initiatives of the Coalition Government move from suggestion and consultation to practical implementation in local areas.
The Manifesto and the new review look at the key issues of:
- Supporting families in their own right
- Involving families in treatment
- Monitoring effectiveness
- Public services thinking family
- Commissioning effectively.
