In this hour-long personal reflection, Mike Trace will look critically at what the substance misuse treatment sector has tried to achieve, and the extent to which it has been successful, over 3 decades of expansion. Focusing on the UK, but also contrasting experience in North America and continental Europe, he will ask the big questions of what has driven the expansion of publicly funded treatment, whose needs does it meet, and whether the sector has made good use of the historic opportunity presented by increased political interest.

Mike is well placed to offer his perspective, as a worker in the sector since the early 1980’s, including senior strategic roles in the UK government, the European Union, and the United Nations.
