Hywel Dda University Health Board  plans to deliver a programme of health improvement, nutrition and diet to around 3,000 people affected by addiction.

In the region of 65 staff at Dyfed Drug and Alcohol Service (DDAS) are being trained to provide the support.

Using funding of over £40,000 given by NHS Charities Together, the aim is to improve knowledge of DDAS workers in matters of nutrition and hydration among their service users so that they can advise and support them.

Two extra part-time staff will train existing staff for the duration of the scheme which ends in September 2024. The aim is to imrpove the wellbeing of people with substance disorders and encourage better, more informed choices about nutrition.
