Welcome to Forth Valley Alcohol and Drug Partnership

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 two local ADPs, which operate in each authority area i.e. Stirling & Clackmannanshire and Falkirk. Inherent in our work are the views expressed by our service users, their families and carers.

Getting our Priorities Right

Alcohol and drug use can result in significant and complex risks for children and young people and in some cases, lives that a greatly damaged as a result. Addressing these issues presents practitioners with some of the most difficult tasks that our health and care services can face. These guidances are grounded in the core principles that govern our common approach to improving services for children, adults and families.

Delivery Plans and Annual Reports




In recent years, there has been a move away from treatment or harm reduction as a focus for working with those who have drug and/or alcohol problems toward a broader conception of "recovery".

Scotland is at the forefront of this transformation. Recovery is a "process through which an individual is enabled to move-on from their problem drug use towards a drug-free life and become an active and contributing member of society" (Scottish Government, 2008, p vi).


Needs Assessment

Needs Assessment 2018

A Needs Assessment was conducted across Forth Valley and reports on the future requirements for services for people with drug and alcohol problems in the area. The purpose was to assist Forth Valley ADP in meeting the recommendations of the Delivery Reform Group report (2009) by providing as assessment of current service provision, as well as a health needs assessment of local needs and gaps.
