The health board has revamped its Edinburgh Alcohol and Drug Partnership (EADP) website, which it runs with the city council. The resource provides in-depth information about addiction and recovery, as well as links to support in the area.

Nick Smith, EADP’s joint programme manager, said: “We have made the most of the partnership and drawn all the available knowledge together on to one site.

“People concerned about their drinking, or that of a family member or friend, will find advice on the issues caused by alcohol and drugs and, importantly, information on the wide range of local agencies which offer help to aid recovery.”
