In line with the new National Mission to reduce drug deaths through improvements to treatment, recovery and other support services, one key priority is to improve and increase access to residential rehabilitation in Scotland.
To date a number of pieces of work have been carried out to better understand the residential rehab landscape in Scotland, including a mapping report, capacity report and recently work on pathways into, though, and out of residential treatment. This work contributes to our understanding of the current Scottish model of residential rehabilitation.
By means of literature review, this project will summarise, compare and contrast European and international models of residential rehabilitation with that established in Scotland. The final report will focus on economic models, treatment modalities, socio demographics and pathways into and out of residential treatment across a number of different countries.
This project will also help address a number of recommendations made by the working group on residential rehab to the Scottish Government, namely on models of delivery (recommendation 7) and on facilitating research (recommendation 6), with a view to contributing towards informing a good practice guide for residential rehab in Scotland.
