                       About this conference




Are we doing enough to prevent the creation of the next
generation of problem drug users in Scotland?


Around     50,000     people   in    Scotland   are   experiencing   drugs
problems and efforts made now are likely to have a significant
impact on the size and scale of the problem in 20 years time.
Heading off the problems likely to arise among those most at risk
of developing problematic drug use has to be one the key
priorities.


Scottish      Drugs   Forum,    in     association    with   the   Scottish
Parliamentary Cross Party Group on Alcohol and Drug Misuse, is
holding a one-day event focusing on the role of Early Intervention
in reducing the possibility of future drug-related harm.


This seminar will explore examples of good practice and explore
the policy issues inhibiting effective roll out of good practice.


The findings from the seminar will feed directly into the
discussions of the Scottish Advisory Committee on Drug Misuse’s
sub group reviewing the current drug strategy and also into the
future work programme of the Scottish Parliamentary Cross Party
Group on Alcohol and Drug Misuse.
