Tabled 11 July 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House commends the recent report from Addaction, Breaking the Cycle, which highlights the importance of family-based interventions for families with drug and alcohol misuse problems; notes that a million children live with a drug misuser or dependent drinker; further notes that an effective family intervention costs 4,000, whilst the estimated cost to society for one troubled family is over 75,000; and calls on the Government to act on the report's recommendations to break the cycle of inter-generational substance misuse as a matter of urgency.
