Its really simple, Alcohol and other drugs related death across the UK is deeply worrying with the leading cause of deaths for people aged 20-49 being due to addiction and mental ill health.
Sadly, there are 70 alcohol-related deaths & at least 17 Drug related deaths in the UK every day. This has a devastating impact on the families and friends left behind. We must continue to drive down addiction deaths, by advocating for investment & access to treatment for all, eradicate stigma and ensure that high quality person-centred services that treat everyone with dignity and respect are the norm.
