Historic Publications

Recent publications are listed on the Publications page of the ISD Drug and Alcohol website.

The Drug Misuse Statistics publication (or ‘bulletin’) was an annual publication presenting the latest available information from a range of national data sources relating to illicit drugs, including routine data collection systems and surveys.  Although the composition of sections varied between years the publication was divided into four main sections: Services and Treatment for Drug Use, Health Impact of Drug Use, Criminal Justice and Social Harm and Prevalence of Drug Use. These bulletins were discontinued and replaced by an expanded set of web pages on the ScotPHO website - Drug section Opens in new window, for each topic, linking to the original sources of the information.

Recent topic-specific reports involving ISD-held or managed data are listed on the Publications page of the ISD Drug and Alcohol website. Generally only publications from 2010 onwards are included in this list.
