The Drug and Alcohol Information System (DAISy) is a national database developed to collect drug and alcohol referral, waiting times and outcome information from staff delivering specialist drug and alcohol interventions.

The objectives of developing a single system are to enhance the quality and completeness of the data available on treatment for problematic drug and alcohol use while providing a more user friendly means of data entry required by staff working in ADPs and specialist treatment services.

DAISy gathers key demographic and outcome data on people who engage with drug/alcohol treatment services. It enables a better understanding of the impact of drug/alcohol treatment services at both a local and national level and consequently will:
