Abstract

This report highlights the need for clinical services to focus more on the needs of older people as growing numbers of baby-boomers seek help for substance misuse. It makes a series of recommendations including the need to enhance training at all levels – such as training more addictions psychiatrists and old–age psychiatrists to manage the specific needs of older substance misusers.
