Reports from almost all parts of Scotland have been suggesting what the NRS and previous National Drug Related Deaths Database findings have confirmed- that outcomes for drug users not engaged in treatment and care are becoming increasingly concerning.
The Drug-related death figures released today revealed 613 registered in Scotland in 2014. Amongst the statistics is the fact that 613 people lost their lives to drug use. And almost all of them will have family/ close significant others.
