Addiction problems of people from ethnic minorities to be studied

Drug and alcohol problems among people from ethnic minorities
are to be the focus of a major new study announced by Glasgow

The move follows research by the council last year which
indicated a higher ratio of drug-related deaths in the Asian
community than expected. The council then noted that these figures
contrasted with a low uptake of addiction rehabilitation services
by people from all ethnic minority backgrounds.

The results of the study are expected later this year.
