Cornish Drug Hotspots Revealed
7:02am 30th October 2012
Newquay has been named Cornwall's drug hotspot.
Pirate FM has learnt 200 people in the resort are trying to beat addiction to things like heroin and cocaine.
A new report says Penzance and Bodmin are also high on the list.
Homelessness is being partly blamed.
Steve Ellis from homesless support charity St Petroc's Society in Truro said: "I'm slightly surprised and concerned that the statistics are as high as they are. It needs to be tackled as quickly as possible. The professional services need to get to them quickly and professionally. If we do that we stand some kind of chance.
"If we think people who take street drugs are going to come to us for help then we are sadly mistaken. We need to leave our offices, go out into our communities and find these people."
Sue Clarke from drug addiction recover service Addaction said: "We've got outreach workers out there working alongside established outreach staff. We can take the service out onto the street because these are people who have not historically walked through the door of treatment services."7:02am 30th October 2012
