10 Interesting Things about Alcohol and Other Drugs (February 2015)

We scour the data on alcohol and other drugs and here are 10 things we found in the last month that might interest you, including:
  • Deaths amongst opioid users (especially those which are not overdose related); 
  • Children in need and care and substance use problems; 
  • Multiple and complex needs; 
  • Trends in police recorded drug offences; 
  • Gang membership, dependency and mental health problems; 
  • Seizures of synthetic cannabinoids in prison; 
  • Public perceptions of the safety of drug taking 

As always any misinterpretation of the data you spot are down to me (and please do let me know so that I can fix them).
