Drinking to excess takes a huge toll on individuals, families, communities and society as a whole.

Many adult problem drug users have long histories of substance misuse which often starts before the age of 18.

Providing well-funded, targeted and effective substance misuse services is vital to help prevent alcohol abuse, enable people to overcome addiction and sustain their recovery.

The case studies that make up this Local Government Association report, highlight the work being carried out to develop high-quality lifestyle and behaviour change services, as well as treatment for those experiencing alcohol dependence.
