This report has been commissioned from the National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse (NTA) by the Department of Health and covers England only. The NTA has no remit over clinical prescribing decisions by GPs or the regulation of pharmaceutical products. However, its oversight of national drug treatment provision and access to commissioners, practitioners and providers of addiction and recovery services make it well placed to investigate the potential extent of misuse of both prescriptiononly- medicines (POM) and over-the-counter medicines (OTC), and the current availability of services to help people addicted to them.
