Drug and alcohol support services session

LOCAL people are being invited to an information event about drugs and alcohol support services available throughout the area.

The public information event will be held in Coleraine on Friday, February 21 and a number of organisations will take part.

The event is being organised by the Voluntary and Community Sector Network (VCSN) and supported and funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA).

Staff and volunteers from drug and alcohol support organisations will be available to answer questions on all aspects of their work including reducing harm related to drugs and alcohol.

Jayne McConaghie, Health and Wellbeing Improvement Senior Officer with the PHA, said: “This walk-in event is for everyone with an interest or need for information on local drug and alcohol support services.

“People can spend as long or as short a time as they wish browsing, there is no need to talk to anyone, but service providers are there, if needed.”

The event will be held at the Lodge Hotel between 10am and 1pm and parking is available. Registration is not required.
