The future government has been asked to consider all available measures to curb the current drug death crisis, including decriminalization, in an unprecedented plea from Britain's largest provider of drug therapies.

They appealed to the next government to be "courageous and radical" in making changes to existing drug laws that are "not appropriate for the modern world".

An independent commission needs to be set up to update the "unbelievably obsolete" policy without options, said UK's largest drug therapist, Change Grow Live.

Prior to the parliamentary elections, the charity called on all political parties to commit to setting up this commission and implementing its recommendations, and to provide centralized earmarked funding for drug and alcohol treatment by at least 2025.

The call was also supported by Addaction, Turning Point and Humankind. Together, the four organizations supported the vast majority of the 268,251 adults who received drug and alcohol treatment in England last year.

The plea for any political party to prioritize the crisis and promise tangible, evidence-based changes in the run-up to parliamentary elections is a response to the record number of drug-related deaths with 4,539 deaths in England and Wales in 2018 and 1,187 in Scotland – the highest rate in Europe.

"Am besorgniserregendsten und völlig inakzeptabel ist, dass diese Tragödien vermieden werden können: mit der richtigen Politik, Vorgehensweise und Unterstützung", sagte Mark Moody, CEO von Change Grow Live, gegenüber The Independent.

    

In Bezug auf das Gesetz über den Missbrauch von Drogen sagte er: „Es gibt nur sehr wenige Richtlinien, die 1971 für die moderne Welt geschrieben wurden – und die Drogengesetzgebung ist eines dieser Dinge.“

Während die Wohltätigkeitsorganisation "keine Aufhebung und Verschiebung von Strategien vorschlägt, die an anderen Orten funktioniert haben" und nicht an "Silberkugeln" glaubt, müssen laut Moody die Entkriminalisierung und andere evidenzbasierte Strategien evaluiert werden in einem britischen Kontext mit nichts "vom Tisch".

"Ich glaube nicht, dass man unbedingt sagen kann, dass das, was für Portugal funktioniert, für Großbritannien funktioniert", betonte er die Notwendigkeit differenzierter politischer Diskussionen, selbst in Bezug auf die möglichen Anforderungen verschiedener Regionen des Landes.

    

Nur die besten Nachrichten in Ihrem Posteingang

Während er jedoch "keine strafrechtlichen oder gesundheitlichen Vorteile" für die Kriminalisierung von Personen sieht, die geringe Mengen von Substanzen für den persönlichen Gebrauch besitzen, schlug Moody vor, dass die Kriminalisierung die Drogenkonsumenten weiter stigmatisieren kann – was er als "einen großen Teil des Problems" bezeichnete das Land “.

    

"Wir sollten über unsere Mitbürger als Menschen sprechen, die ein Problem haben, anstatt sie zu dämonisieren", sagte er.

    

„Wenn man Menschen auf diese Weise charakterisiert, kommt es einem in den Weg, vernünftig darüber nachzudenken, wie etwas zu tun ist, was ein Problem für die gesamte Gesellschaft ist, nicht nur für die Person, die davon betroffen ist.“

Im Oktober forderten die Abgeordneten des Gesundheits- und Sozialausschusses die Minister auf, eine Entkriminalisierung in Erwägung zu ziehen, um das anzugehen, was sie als „Krise der öffentlichen Gesundheit“ bezeichneten.

Die Konservative Partei hat sich jedoch weiterhin entschlossen zum Verbot von Drogen verpflichtet. Sie ignorierte Bitten um sicherere Einrichtungen für den Drogenkonsum und warb um Kontroversen, nachdem die angebliche "politische Überprüfung" des Beirats für den Missbrauch von Drogen durch die Minister Fragen nach seiner Unabhängigkeit angeheizt hatte.

    

Auf die Frage, ob er befürchtet, dass bestimmte Parteien die Empfehlungen einer unabhängigen Kommission mit geringerer Wahrscheinlichkeit als andere umsetzen könnten, sagte Moody, er glaube, „jeder Politiker, der wirklich die Interessen des Landes hat, moralisch, gesundheitlich und finanziell, "Erkennt die Bedeutung einer Neubewertung der Drogenpolitik.

Die Zahl der Drogentoten hat sich seit 2012 fast verdoppelt, als die Regierung zentrale, zweckgebundene Budgets für die Drogen- und Alkoholbehandlung streifte und die Verantwortung für die öffentliche Gesundheit auf die lokalen Behörden übertrug. Es legte auch einen Schwerpunkt auf das Erreichen einer völligen Abstinenz, was sich nach Ansicht einiger Experten negativ auf die Bemühungen zur Reduzierung lebensrettender Schäden ausgewirkt hat.

Angesichts der Tatsache, dass die umkämpften Räte gezwungen waren, die Ausgaben für Suchtdienste während eines Jahrzehnts der Sparmaßnahmen zu senken, sagte Moody, der Umstieg auf die Lokalisierung habe "zu einem Grad an Variabilität geführt, der nur zu einer Postleitzahl-Lotterie führen kann", mit "sehr unterschiedlichen verfügbaren Einrichtungen" für die Menschen, um Hilfe zu bekommen. "

Er sagte: "Wenn wir über ein Gesundheitsproblem wie Diabetes oder Krebs sprechen – ich denke nicht, dass wir eine Postleitzahl-Lotterie für Drogenmissbrauch mehr bevorzugen sollten, als wir es für solche Dinge tun würden."

Der Geschäftsführer von Turning Point für Drogenmissbrauch und öffentliche Gesundheit, Jay Stewart, sagte: "Der derzeitige Investitionsmangel macht keinen Sinn in Bezug auf die Kosten für die Gesellschaft und den NHS.

„Das menschliche Leid, das wir auf den Straßen jeder Stadt und in ländlichen Gebieten sehen, ist wirklich die Spitze des Eisbergs, während der Brexit unsere gesamte politische Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht.

„In der Zwischenzeit gibt es immer noch Todesfälle, unzählige Leiden von Kindern und Gemeinden und die Verschwendung von Leben. Gleichzeitig kostet es den Steuerzahler mehr Geld. Eine Dosis gesunden Menschenverstands und sofortiges Handeln ist erforderlich. "

Die Wohltätigkeitsorganisationen forderten neben der Rückzahlung von zweckgebundenen Mitteln für Behandlungsleistungen bis mindestens 2025 gezielte Investitionen in die Erprobung neuer Ansätze zur Bekämpfung von Drogentoten, insbesondere in Gebieten, in denen Drogenmissbrauch überproportional verbreitet ist.

Zu diesen Maßnahmen gehören die Pilotierung der nahezu universellen Bereitstellung von Naloxon, einem „nachgewiesenen Lebensretter“, der die Wirkung von Opioiden umkehrt, und verstärkte heroinunterstützte Behandlungsschemata, bei denen besonders etablierte Heroinkonsumenten regelmäßig Dosen des Arzneimittels erhalten. Klassenform.

Der CEO der Menschheit, Paul Townsley, sagte, dass "Tausende von Menschenleben" durch Investitionen in Front-Service-Maßnahmen und Maßnahmen zur Schadensminderung gerettet werden könnten, und begrüßte den Aufruf, über Entkriminalisierung nachzudenken.

    

Er sagte: „Ich glaube, wir sollten uns auf die Beweise konzentrieren, was funktioniert, und mutig und radikal bei den Änderungen sein, die wir vornehmen.“

Robin Pollard, ein Politikforscher bei Addaction, sagte: „Der Versuch, uns aus dem Problem herauszuhalten, war ein monumentaler Fehlschlag. Die nächste Regierung muss den Beweisen folgen und die Menschen mit Mitgefühl und Würde behandeln, nicht mit Bestrafung. Es ist Zeit, dass das Wohl und die Sicherheit der Menschen an erster Stelle stehen. "

Als Reaktion auf die Forderung des Behandlungssektors wies ein Labour-Sprecher auf sein Manifest hin, "eine königliche Kommission einzurichten, um einen Ansatz für die öffentliche Gesundheit zur Bekämpfung des Drogenmissbrauchs zu entwickeln, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf der Schadensminimierung wegen Kriminalisierung liegt".

Während die Konservative Partei nicht auf die Bitte um Stellungnahme geantwortet hat, verspricht ihr Manifest, „die Drogenkriminalität zu bekämpfen und gleichzeitig eine neue Herangehensweise an die Behandlung zu verfolgen, um die Zahl der Drogentoten zu verringern und den damit verbundenen Kriminalitätszyklus zu durchbrechen zur Sucht “.

Die Liberaldemokraten haben sich verpflichtet, Cannabis zu legalisieren und den Besitz zum persönlichen Gebrauch als zivilrechtliche und nicht als strafbare Handlung zu behandeln.

Die Grünen versprechen, den Krieg gegen Drogen, den sie als "durchschlagendes Versagen" bezeichnet, zu beenden, das Gesetz über den Missbrauch von Drogen aufzuheben und all diejenigen zu entschuldigen, die zuvor wegen Besitzes und Lieferung von Kleinmengen verurteilt worden waren.
