The new national drug and alcohol strategy (NDS), Reducing harm, supporting recovery: a health-led approach to drug and alcohol use in Ireland 2017—2025,1 was informed by a number of inputs, including a public consultation process. The public were invited to provide feedback on what they thought of the 20092016 strategy and what issues should be considered in the development of the new strategy. They could provide this by making a written or oral submission to the Department of Health, completing a questionnaire, or attending one of six regional events. Submissions and questionnaires could be made or submitted over the phone, by email, by post, or through the Department of Health’s website. Furthermore, there was an event and questionnaire that specifically targeted young people. Report on public consultation undertaken to inform the new national drugs strategy was subsequently published in May 2017.2
