Daily Dose is maintained by WIRED. WIRED was developed six years ago by David Clark, a Professor of Psychology at University of Wales, Swansea, as a way of empowering people to tackle substance misuse. It aims to:

Provide the information, support and tools that people require to help them overcome or reduce their substance use problem;
Improve the quality of services in the community provided to people with a substance use problem and their families and carers;
