THE COUNCIL is teaming up with a clinical group to plan a new service that will help support recovering drug users.

Barnsley Council and Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working together to plan the service that will support people over 18.

From April 2017, the council says it will commission a new model for prevention and recovery from drug and alcohol misuse, with a greater focus on reducing the harm caused to families and the local community.
