Advertising testimonial

I have been regularly receiving DS Daily for a couple of years now. It has proved extremely useful to me in my capacity as a trainer as it has up to date information, not just from the UK but from around the world. Therefore when I decided to start my own drug and alcohol training business it seemed like a natural place to put an advert for my services. I found the people at DS Daily both friendly and helpful, and it proved extremely easy to get the advert placed. Now I know this is getting to the heart of the people I want to reach, as over 4,500 people in the drug and alcohol sector regularly read, and benefit from, the bulletin. Not only that, but for a month of advertising the rates are extremely reasonable. Indeed, so far advertising with DS Daily has more than paid for itself in terms of the contacts I have made as a result. I will continue to advertise with DS Daily, and I happily recommend their services to other organisations. Tim Pope, Owner, TLP Addiction Training -

Bristol Drugs Project


Alcohol & Drug Problems affect lots of people. A national poll in 2009 showed that almost 1 in 5 adults have been personally affected by drug addiction alone: that's over 82,000 people in Bristol. Many more people have problems with alcohol.

And tackling an alcohol or drug problem can be tough - but there are people making major changes in their lives every day. As part of the new Bristol ROADS (Recovery Orientated Alcohol & Drugs Service), Bristol Drugs Project helps over 3,000 people a year to make those changes.
