Interesting things about alcohol and other drugs you might have missed - April 2015

One of the things I've enjoyed about being at DrugScope has been ferreting out fascinating information that is out there about our field.

This month the slides include information which suggests:
  • Areas with highest levels of need are dis-investing in alcohol services faster than other areas. 
  • Many fewer teachers are being trained to deliver health education. 
  •  That only very small numbers of under-18s are being treated for cannabis psychosis in hospital (but there's been a rise in the last year).
  • That more people with drug and alcohol issues in receipt of ESA are likely to be sanctioned than would be proportional.
  • That there are now more people being convicted for drug offences than alcohol ones.
