The National Drugs Mission: Taking Concrete Action to Tackle Stigma - Amendment

Submitted by: Sue Webber, Lothian, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party.
Date lodged: Wednesday, November 23, 2022

Supported by: Stephen Kerr
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, November 24, 2022

As an amendment to motion S6M-06924 in the name of Angela Constance (The National Drugs Mission: Taking Concrete Action to Tackle Stigma), leave out from "calls" to end and insert "notes that FAVOR UK’s report, One Year Report – Blueprint to Save Lives, published on 21 November 2022, highlights significant challenges faced by those affected by a drug addiction, including many individuals being required to wait for years to access vital treatment; is concerned that, despite multiple action plans, Scotland still has the highest drug death rate in Europe, and 3.7 times higher than the UK as a whole; expresses concern that stigma is especially problematic amongst those with hepatitis C, with 90% of new hepatitis C infections occurring through sharing contaminated injecting equipment; urges the Scottish Government to implement the recommendations of the Scottish Drug Deaths Taskforce, particularly in regards to the "no wrong door" approach, which will stop people struggling with drug use being turned away from service providers, and calls on the Scottish Government to back the Proposed Right to Addiction Recovery (Scotland) Bill, which would enshrine in law a right to treatment, so that all those affected by addiction in Scotland can get the support they need."
