A DRUG intervention programme is doing an "excellent" job according to the shadow minister for justice, who visited the centre.
MP David Burrowes told the WHT he was "really impressed" with the Drug Intervention Programme (DIP) based on Ascots Lane, WGC, that helps patients recover from drug abuse.
He said: "I spoke to DIP workers and clients and they both said it's really effective.
"A lot of clients who volunteered found they were motivated to change.
"It is something working, something that allows people to give them the help they need."
The programme is a national crime reduction/drug treatment scheme that aims to reduce crime through engaging Class A drug users into treatment.
