Drugs and Alcohol
Drugs and Alcohol can have a major impact on people who use them, as well as their family, friends and community. Drugs and Alcohol can affect people's mental health, physical health, financial wellbeing and relationships.
Work has begun to better understand drug and alcohol issues on the island - October 2016
A project to assess and better understand drug and alcohol issues in the Isle of Man, and plan future services, has commenced with a series of informal community chat sessions which were held at venues across the Island.
The work will help to inform Government and other stakeholders on the needs of the Island’s community, ultimately shaping services for the public, such as efforts to prevent drug and alcohol abuse as well as supporting those with addiction.
The project – called a joint strategic needs assessment – was started by the Island’s multi-agency Drug and Alcohol Steering Group.
