National Drugs Strategy – Public Consultation

The new National Drugs Strategy will set out Government Policy on tackling the drug problem from 2017 onwards. The public consultation process will run from Tuesday 6th of September until Tuesday 18th of October at 5.oo p.m.

After the public consultation is completed the information collected will be compiled into a report which will then be presented to the National Drugs Strategy Steering Committee. The information will assist in the development of the new strategy.

As stated in the Cork & Kerry Alcohol Strategy we must include alcohol as part of our response to substance misuse. When the National Drugs Strategy runs out we must include alcohol in a new National Substance Misuse Strategy from the start of 2017.

You can share your views on the new strategy by completing the online survey which can be found here:
