Information services at partner agencies
focuses on research evaluating interventions intended to reduce drug or alcohol problems. There is of course a much wider world of drug/alcohol research concerning for example the extent and causes of substance use problems and effects on health and society. Beyond this is policy and practice news. This is where the members of the partnership and our part-funder the Alcohol Education and Research Council can help plug the gaps. Here are some of the information services they provide.
