on the effectiveness of responses to drug and
alcohol problems and the practitioners who provide those interventions. The project aims to encapsulate

From 1999 to 2006 its main output was the
Drug and Alcohol Findings magazine, now replaced by
this free web-based service backed by the Effectiveness Bank database.
is a partnership project managed by Alcohol Concern, DrugScope, the National Addiction Centre, and the editor, Mike Ashton.
