Welcome to Forth Valley Alcohol and Drug Partnership Website
FVSAT Region

Forth Valley Alcohol & Drug Partnership (ADP) is a multi-agency partnership established to implement and respond to the national strategies on alcohol, drugs, tobacco and volatile substances. Membership comprises of lead officers and advisors from the appropriate statutory and voluntary bodies from across Forth Valley.

Forth Valley Alcohol and Drug Partnership has the responsibility for developing an area -wide substance strategy. The strategy ensures that the appropriate range of treatment options is provided for, and available, at point of need. In addition, the strategy ensures the provision of the appropriate range of treatment options, required to promote the recovery of those affected by substance use problems, and their availability at point of need.

We are guided in this work by three local ADPs, which operate in each authority area i.e. Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling.

Inherent in our work are the views expressed by our service users, their families and carers.

Overdose alert
Public health experts in Forth Valley have issued a warning about the dangers of taking heroin particularly with other drugs .The alert follows a spate of suspected drug-related deaths across the area in the past week where evidence suggests that the five people who have died used heroin possibly with other substances including alcohol.
Drug users are being warned of the dangers of abusing multiple substances and are being urged to pick up a personal supply of Naloxone, a medication which can reverse the effects of an opiate overdose. It comes in a pocket size kit and can be administered whilst waiting for an ambulance. Family members and friends can receive training on overdose prevention and learn more about the key role they can play in saving a life. For more information on Training in Forth Valley please contact Signpost Recovery on 0845 673 1774.
