The Scottish Government’s national drug strategy, The Road to Recovery, was published in 2008 and continues to receive cross-party support from the Scottish Parliament.

Central to the strategy is the concept of recovery. Recovery is a process through which a person is enabled to move-on from their problem drug use towards a drug-free life and become an active and contributing member of society.
