Tackling Drug Related Deaths Through the First Year of the National Mission

Submitted by: Angela Constance, Almond Valley, Scottish National Party.
Date lodged: Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Supported by: Kevin Stewart, Nicola Sturgeon, Maree Todd, Humza Yousaf
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, January 13, 2022

That the Parliament believes that drug deaths are tragic, preventable and an unacceptable loss of life; supports the national mission that seeks to galvanise an all-Scotland response to this public health emergency, and recognises that no single intervention will be enough on its own; notes the need to continue to build on the work of the Drug Deaths Taskforce and other expert groups to implement evidence-led interventions that reduce deaths and improve lives; further notes that this includes increasing capacity of rehabilitation beds by 50% and providing more than a 300% increase in publicly-funded placements; welcomes the new Medication-Assisted Treatment Standards, including the implementation of same-day treatment and increasing the range of treatment options available across the country, to help save lives; commends further consideration of measures to make rights real and to implement in practice a human-rights approach through person-centred care; considers that safer consumption facilities are an important public health measure that could save lives, and supports all options within the existing legal framework being explored to enable the delivery of these facilities.
