Nutrition and Addiction

A recent publication by Glasgow Addiction Services summarises the key findings from a scoping exercise looking at the nutritional care currently provided within their service. The report found that there were high levels of nutritional problems amongst service users and identified some gaps in the service, including the need for more robust nutritional screening procedures, staff nutrition training and a lack of suitable nutrition education resources. The report will be now be used by Glasgow Addiction Services to help develop strategies to improve nutritional care across the service.
