New SHAAP report 'Dying for a drink' to be launched, 26th October 2018

On 26th October at RCPE, SHAAP will launch its new report, ‘Dying for a drink’, commissioned by the Scottish Government, that discusses alcohol deaths in Scotland and draws on interviews with those affected to highlight the personal tragedies that this continues to cause. The new report also makes recommendations for actions to reduce this in future.

SHAAP’s new report also calls for more ‘professional optimism’, to recognise that people can recover from alcohol problems and to support that process.
