This research, released on 7 June 2022 by the Evangelical Alliance and Serve Scotland highlights the extraordinary efforts that have been made by Christians in Scotland to assist and care for those in addiction, bringing to light the scope of Christian services across Scotland. We note the high percentage of residential beds for addiction patients offered by Christian groups, 121 out of 418 (Scottish Govt, February 2021). Within the past decade, over 2,300 individuals have been directly treated and successfully recovered from their addition through services offered by Christian groups and churches across Scotland.

This report is to be presented at the Scottish Parliament on 7 June.
