Alcohol and Drug Partnerships
There are 30 dedicated Alcohol and Drugs Partnerships in Scotland.
Alcohol & Drug Partnerships (ADPs) have a strategic role in co-ordinating efforts to tackle problem drug use and alcohol misuse in the local area. They are responsible for developing local strategies for tackling alcohol and drugs problems that are based on the needs of the area, evidence and outcomes. ADPs are made up of senior officials from local statutory and non-statutory bodies, including the core partners of health, social work, police, prisons, education and the voluntary sector.
