Holleran J, Simpson J, Browne T & Matheson C (2020) A Strategy to Address the Stigmatisation of People and Communities Affected by Drug Use. Scottish Drug Deaths Taskforce. https://drugdeathstaskforce.scot/news-information/publications/policy-and-strategy/stigma-policy-and-strategy/
The aim of this strategy is to lead a more informed and compassionate approach across society toward people with a drug problem, lived experience of drug use and their families. We acknowledge that people across society use drugs. This strategy is focussed on those for whom drug use is, or drug use has been, problematic.
