Alcohol and other drugs in social care – three new reports

Three new reports looking at alcohol and other drugs in social care practice, education and training have been added to the Alcohol Library.  Produced by researchers at the Tina Goldberg Centre (University of Bedfordshire), these reports identify current gaps in support for work around alcohol and substance use across all areas of social care training and practice.  They provide a significant contribution to our understanding of how social work training can better prepare and support service providers in dealing with alcohol issues.
