Alcohol and substance misuse

Alcohol and drug use carries significant risks to health, both short and long-term. Short-term impacts of substance misuse include an increase in risk of injury and infectious diseases. Long-term impacts include cancers, liver, and heart disease as well as mental health problems. Both alcohol and drug use pose a significant risk of dying prematurely.

Substance misuse cannot be treated in isolation and issues, such as social isolation, unemployment, unstable accommodation, mental health, and basic needs, must also be addressed.

Below you can find a number of documents identifying the local population needs. Please note that this list will be updated as and when the new information becomes available.
