For each of the last three years, Scotland has suffered record numbers of drugs overdose deaths. Each of these tragic deaths impacts on individuals, families, communities and the nation. This cannot be accepted or allowed to become a ‘new normal’.
Drug overdose deaths are preventable. We know how to prevent these deaths and yet they still happen.
Scottish Drugs Forum has launched #StopTheDeaths to raise awareness of the rising toll of drug overdose deaths in Scotland and focus efforts to prevent these tragedies. #StopTheDeaths will also focus on other drug-related deaths – for example, those caused by adverse health effects of drug use.
