Drug Menace among Youth Quadruples since 1997

Scotland: This ain’t funny, but drugs seem to hold many youth under a spell. Recent figures have revealed the alarming rise of drugs among youngsters,// to the tune of an increase of 400%, ever since the labour has come to power.

Experts have reiterated the need for specialized services to remedy this menace, among children. Neil McKeganey, professor of drug misuse research at the University of Glasgow, said: "These figures are shocking and they underline the reason why we need in Scotland substance abuse services that are appropriate for children at a much earlier stage."

David Liddell, the director of the Scottish Drugs Forum, who has also favored the need for specialist drug services for children said "There has been progress in services, but I think there is a need for a closer look to make sure each area has appropriate services for younger age groups.”
