* WHAT AM I? *
I am a legal drug.
90% of Derbyshire adults use me.
26% of those use me at high risk levels.
3.2million litres of me is sold each year in Derbyshire.
Each year I am involved in 2,373 hospital admissions of Erewash residents.
60 deaths of Erewash individuals are related to me each year.
I am alcohol.
This week is Alcohol Awareness Week, and our Community Safety team is providing some helpful advice on how alcohol can affect your life. Like the Safer Erewash Facebook page for daily updates.
The team have released a video following the story of Joshua and his struggle with alcohol. Watch it on our YouTube channel.
