A mobile app that provides resources on the theory, practice and legislation related to drugs and alcohol is now available to download for iPhones and other mobile devices. 

The app, which was created by substance abuse charity ASCERT in conjunction with Queen’s University Belfast also provides information on services available in Northern Ireland that address drug and alcohol issues.

This App provides an overview of the theories which underpin substance misuse, the relevant policy and legislation, the up-to-date drug and alcohol statistics for NI, the principles and values in working with substance misuse and a regularly updated directory of services via an easy to access regional map.

The App has been created to ensure ease of access for service users, people who use alcohol and / or drugs and who require updated information and also workers who are involved at all levels of drug and alcohol service provision.
