Scottish Drugs Strategy Delivery Commission: First Year Report & Recommendations to Minister

This is the first report from the Drug Strategy Delivery Commission (DSDC) – reflecting its first year of operations. The DSDC is an independent commission, established by the Scottish Government in 2009 to monitor and assess whether Scotland’s national drug strategy The Road to Recovery is being successfully implemented and achieving its aims.

The Road to Recovery was published in 2008 and describes 59 actions and expected outcomes for the Scottish Government and its partners. These included: 10 actions on Promoting Recovery; 11 on Delivering the Recovery Model; 9 on Prevention; 12 on Enforcement and 17 on Children Affected by Substance Misusing Families. The strategy aims to improve the expectations of both services dealing with substance misuse and their clients in Scotland.
