10 things about alcohol and other drugs you may have missed over the last month
These slides are a way of capturing some of the interesting information about alcohol and other drugs that I come across in my reading.
As you'll see this month includes tax revenue from alcohol across Europe, mortality rates for lung cancer, daily doses of OST in Scotland, milligrams of methadone prescribed in Scotland, reasons given for refusing 'place of safety' under the Mental Health Act, calls to the NPIS about drugs, prisoners ability to access drugs and alcohol in England, absconders from prison, re-offending drug offenders in England
It should be clear where I've sourced the information from but if not (and you'd like to know) then do get in touch.
It is also worth saying that if there are any errors in the presentation they are almost certainly mine rather than the original authors.
