Welcome to the LDAN website

The London Drug & Alcohol Network (LDAN) is a London-wide voluntary organisation. It was set up in January 2001 to provide advice, information and support to frontline services – those working directly with people who have drug and alcohol problems in London.

This is the first time drug and alcohol service providers have come together as one network to tackle the capital’s drug and alcohol problems on a London-wide basis.

As the only organisation that represents and reflects the interests of London drug and alcohol service providers, LDAN is uniquely placed to influence policy and practice on drugs and alcohol across London.

Please come in and find out more. And, if you are interested in receiving regular news of, or that affecting the network of London alcohol and drug services – please join us via our online LDAN membership facility.

We welcome your comments and feedback on this website and on our work in London.

About LDAN

The London Drug and Alcohol Network (LDAN) was launched in 2001 and has since gone on to provide a powerful voice for the drug and alcohol sector. As a London-wide membership network representing the interests of treatment providers, LDAN is uniquely placed to influence policy and practice across the capital.

LDAN  provides a bi-monthly newsletter – LDAN News – updating its membership on drug and alcohol issues affecting the capital. LDAN facilitates a bi-monthly London service providers forum in partnership with the National Treatment Agency and a quarterly Senior Managers Group for service providers in London.
