The Matthew Project, along with organisations across Norfolk, are continuing to work hard to support those affected by substance misuse across the county. New programmes, such as Project ADDER, have seen early success in tackling drugs harms through partnerships across health, enforcement, employment, housing and criminal justice agencies.
Nonetheless, substance misuse remains a major issue in Norfolk, and in 2019 Norwich saw the second highest rate of drug deaths in the country.
