On Opioid Substitution Therapy, overdoses and much more
This is the third post in a new monthly series reproducing Andrew Brown’s monthly slideshare of interesting new facts about alcohol and other drugs which he has unearthed from a wide range of reports.
Andrew works for MEAM/Making Every Adult Matter, the coalition of three national charities (Clinks, Homeless Link and Mind) who champion the cause of people experiencing multiple needs and who have been kind enough to allow Andrew’s monthly slideshares to be re-published here.
This month’s slides are as wide-ranging as ever. Personally, I was concerned by the fact that last year the Scottish Ambulance Service was called out 6 times a day to people who had taken legal highs (Slide 10) and, frankly, terrified by the news that there are 5,800 organised crime groups in the UK (Slide 22).
