Drug and alcohol services in Bury

Tell us what you think

For the first time, the 2010 drug strategy brings together all substance misuse interventions. That is, it includes treatment and support options that will address dependency to drugs, alcohol, 'legal highs' and over the counter medicines. The main aim of the strategy is to assist individuals to fully recover from their addictions.

We want to know what you think, and you can help us by taking part in the consultation and completing a questionnaire.

To take part you can complete an online questionnaire or print the downloadable version and return in the post. The questionnaires are available to the right of this page.

The consultation will start on Tuesday 1 October and continue for 12 weeks.
