Strategic Aim 


North Ayrshire ADP - A Strategy for the Future 2011-15 was developed in partnership with a range of stakeholders within the Community Planning Partnership.  It is an achievable strategy that works with and within communities to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol and drug misuse on individuals, families and communities.

The overarching aim of the strategy is to support the population of North Ayrshire to build on their strengths to reduce alcohol and drug misuse to the benefit of individuals, families and communities.
The Strategy takes account of the Scottish Government strategies,
  • The Road to Recovery: A New Approach to Tackling Scotland's Drug Problem (2008) 
  • Changing Scotland's Relationship with Alcohol: A Framework for Action (2009).
Both documents provide clear direction for Alcohol and Drug Partnerships and service providers for future approaches to be adopted to appropriately address the needs of people affected by their own, or others, substance misuse. The key themes of these national strategies are fully endorsed in our local strategy.
The aims of the Strategy is to demonstrate partnership working, to provide well designed services that will be delivered in an open, transparent and cost effective manner that will support us to achieve our vision, which is ‘The harmful effects of alcohol and drug misuse in North Ayrshire are reduced'.
The Strategy describes how we intend to respond to a range of alcohol and drug issues in North Ayrshire, reduce harm, promote recovery and how we will engage with people whose lives are affected by alcohol and /or drugs including children affected by parental substance misuse.
