Problem drug use in Scotland: Scott’s story

As part of its inquiry into Problem Drug Use in Scotland, the Scottish Affairs Committee heard from a number of witnesses with lived experience of substance use. In May 2019, Scott gave evidence to the Committee at the Houses of Parliament; you can view their full evidence session from the link at the bottom. After speaking to the MPs, Scott spoke about their experience of Scotland’s drug problem and outlined what policy changes they think are needed to better address problem drug use. The Scottish Affairs Committee are extremely grateful to Colin, Sharon, Scott, Hannah, Sandra, and Rosie & Colin for giving up their time to speak to them.
