Schottland. SDF statement on proposals by community activists to establish a supervised drug consumption facility

Services that offer witnessed drug consumption to people who inject drugs help protect people from the risks of public injecting.  The development of such services is a rational and evidence-based response to the problems we face in Scotland – including hazardous public injecting, HIV outbreaks and a continuing high prevalence of hepatitis C.  Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) has made the case and promoted understanding of such services for many years.
