HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c63W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many specialist drug dependency units are currently operating in Scottish hospitals.

Mr. Younger

The term "drug dependency unit" is not used in Scotland. Drug misusers in Scotland who require hospital care are usually treated as outpatients at mental hospitals and psychiatric units. In addition, there are two hospital-based clinics in Scotland which provide services specifically for drug misusers. These are situated at the Southern general hospital, Glasgow and Woodilee hospital, Glasgow.
