The Department of Health and Social Care has launched a project to understand the Island's drug and alcohol issues.

Informal chats within the community have been led by the Drug and Alcohol Steering Group as the Government looks to outline its plans for the next five years.

Those who currently use the service will also be given the chance to voice their opinions, while the public is able to provide feedback too.

The Island's seized asset fund - which is made up of money and assets taken from criminals - is being used to fund the research.

A final report is expected to be published in the spring.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the project in confidence can email drugsandalcohol@gov.im.
