Hidden harm: next steps

This resource vividly describes the situation of many children and young people living in substance misusing households. It identifies, and brings together, a range of actions and initiatives that the Scottish Executive is taking forward and will take forward, in partnership with a range of local partners – Alcohol and Drug Action Teams (ADATs), NHS Boards, local authorities, the police, the courts and the Scottish Prison Service (SPS) and their partner agencies – to improve the way in which agencies identify, protect and support children and young people living with parental substance misuse.
