NB: LARGE INSTITUTION MEMBERSHIP CHANGES

Due to changes to our publishing contract, APSAD can no longer offer on-line access to the Drug and Alcohol Review for large institutional membership.

Please note that the change in on-line access came into effect on 1st January 2009.

These changes do not reflect on APSAD's dedication to our institutional members and APSAD would like to thank-you for your continued support of the Society.
