Bermuda’s fight against drug begins with the Department for National Drug Control. It works hard to prevent the use of drugs by those not currently using them, reduce the harm for those who use them, and promote effective and innovative treatment and rehabilitation for those affected by substance abuse.
What do they do?
The Department of National Drug Control:
- runs the women’s and men’s drug treatment centres in Bermuda, including counselling, skill building, and therapy programmes;
- advocates and educates on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and harm reduction which concerns alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs;
- provides technical advice, educational resources, and financial support to drug prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation services; and
- performs research and develops legislation to strengthen drug policy in Bermuda.
The Bermuda Drug Information Network
The Bermuda Drug Information Network (BerDIN) is committed to providing the evidence that allows for discussions and decisions to be informed by sound, centrally available, local data, on a wide range of issues that increase understanding of the complex, dynamic, and evolving nature of the Island’s drug problem.
