Stephen Burniston, Michael Dodd, Lawrence Elliott, Linda McSwiggan, Watson Lynsay

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This report gives an account of treatment services in Scotland for children and young people who have problems with drug misuse. The research was carried out for the Effective Interventions Unit (EIU) of the Scottish Executive, by a partnership comprising York Consulting Limited (YCL) and The School of Nursing and Midwifery, Dundee University (SNMDU).

The aim of the project was to review existing knowledge about, and current service provision for, the treatment and care of young people with developing or established problems with drugs misuse.

The focus of the review is on children under 16, but it includes consideration of services for 16 to 18 year olds, as there are issues and transition routes which link the two age groups.
