This guidance sets out PHE’s expectation that support should be available in every area for people with a dependency on prescription or over-the-counter medicines, based on a full assessment of local need. It has been produced with input from experts on addiction to medicines, and outlines a number of sources that commissioners can use to identify the scale of misuse or dependence, and in relation to what medicines in their area.
