The Alcohol and Drug Strategy suggests that this is an "innovative approach"



Ministers commit themselves to adopting an "innovative" approach to drug addiction and alcoholism, although they are "uncomfortable".

The Minister of Health, Joe FitzPatrick, has stated that the Scottish Government has an additional £ 20m in its new strategy.

He said: "Money is not the same to produce more."

Scotland registered 934 deaths in 2017, more than doubled in 2007.

In the meantime, there were 8,546 cases of drugs admitted to the hospital, with 36,235 alcohol related events.

All drug add-ons more than half (54%) and 41% of alcohol were among the poorest communities.

The Scottish Government is a new national strategy that helps people with dependency, help people with more problems, such as housing, mental health and employment.

This approach means, if appropriate, that some drug users will not be taken to court.

New rights, respect and retrieval documents support Scottish Ministers in a safe way of consuming drugs – Home officials will not accept it.

Likewise, the intention is to develop a new drug and alcohol education program for schools, so it is "the use of universal substance education".

For the moment, "variations" and "inconsistencies" exist in existing programs; About 70% of the 15-year-olds had lessons in discussions with drugs at school.

The report also said that "classroom-based interventions should be beyond", in order to provide "alcoholic and drug-based education in" innovative and innovative ways. Only one way of joining young people's groups and community learning and development projects.

Among 61,500 people between 15 and 64, Scotland is a drug user, although the report acknowledges that "the challenge is to escalate the problem of alcohol and drug use."

Mr. FitzPatrick has said: "We help improve how people help people who suffer from drugs and alcohol, one of the most serious and most complex problems.

"But clearly, illnesses and deaths caused by excessive substance are inevitable and we must do all we can to avoid them.

"This means treating people and all their complex needs, not just people who do not endanger the excess, excessive substance, and at the beginning of intervention, addiction, imbalances and traumas."

He added: "This strategy is geared towards a 20 million euro add-on, with a great investment in drug and alcohol treatment and prevention.

"We want to see approaches based on equality and evidence, decomposing it or not. Money is not the only thing to produce."

The Holyrood ministers published new strategies for the day in which the Scottish Tories set up comprehensive drug review plans and also launched anti-crime criminal offenses.

Conservatives also want to customize "life plans", for all those who receive help, along with the review of all drug deaths.
