Views sought on how to cut number of drug-related deaths

The local Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP) is seeking the views of individuals and organisations on how to combat drug-related deaths.

At a national drug deaths taskforce meeting they discussed what immediate actions could be put in place to stem the rise in drug deaths.

As a result, ADPs were asked to consult local partners and people with lived experience to consider the question: “What one thing would you recommend that we could do now to stem the rise in drug-related deaths we are experiencing in Scotland?”

Responses to the question are sought by Monday October 14 and can be sent to
