One of the very happy consequences of Scotland’s Road to Recovery Drug Strategy has been the formation and growth of visible recovery from addiction communities all over the country.

These communities are key to the work of the Partnership for Action on Drugs in Scotland (PADS). One of their goals is to help create communities in which recovery from addiction can flourish.  The PADS group invited every one of these communities to gather together for the first time to explore the impact stigma has on their addiction and recovery experiences.

Following the Recovery Connections event held in The Tramway, Glasgow on 1st September 2017 please find a report outlining some recommendations to ending Stigma in Scotland.
