The New Strategic Direction for Alcohol and Drugs Phase 2 (NSD-2) is a cross-departmental strategy led by the Department of Health, which aims to reduce the level of alcohol and drug-related harm in Northern Ireland. The strategy was launched in 2011 and remains the official strategy in 2018.
NSD Annual Progress Reports
In order to measure the extent to which the overall aim of reducing alcohol and drug-related harm is being met, NSD Phase 2 established a set of Indicators that can be used for this purpose. Progress against these indicators has been reported annually between 2013 and 2016.
