First and foremost, we would like to thank all of the pupils who participated in the 2015 Scottish Schools Adolescent Lifestyle and Substance Use Survey ( SALSUS).
We would also like to thank the schools that participated and, in particular, the teachers who organised and administered the survey. In addition, we would like to thank individuals from Alcohol and Drug Partnerships ( ADPs) and Education departments within local authorities who encouraged schools to take part.
We are grateful to the SALSUS steering group for their help and guidance over the life of the project, and in particular to Justine Geyer and Emma McCallum for their support throughout.
Finally, we would like to acknowledge the contributions of many Ipsos MORI colleagues, in particular: Chris Martin, Steven Hope, David Myers, Yinka Oluwi and Anna Sperati.
