Approaches to Alcohol and Drugs in Scotland: 12 Dimensions of a Manageable Problem
In early 2007, Scotland’s Futures Forum considered there to be 12 dimensions to the project question, ‘how Scotland could reduce the damage to its population through alcohol and drugs by half by 2025’. It then set about looking for experts both nationally and internationally, who could speak, discuss and debate with the Futures Forum their work, evidence and approaches.
