In reality, attempts to include the wider community in drugs and alcohol policy are in their infancy and various factors have been identified which militate against such involvement. According to a recent article which appeared in Druglink,1 one of the main problems to be faced is how to build an effective framework for community engagement (McIntyre, 2003). If community involvement in drugs initiatives is to become more effective and transparent, it suggests, the following questions will have to be answered.
• What defines a community?
• How are communities identified?
• Which sections of the community are engaged?
• What are the processes by which they become involved in particular programmes?
• How much power will they actually possess?
