Introduction

This report provides an overview of findings from the 2015 wave of the Scottish Schools Adolescent Lifestyle and Substance Use Survey ( SALSUS). It outlines the prevalence of smoking, drinking and drug use in 2015 and the trends over time. It also looks at the risk factors and protective factors associated with substance use, sources of substances, attitudes towards substance use, and views on the support and advice provided by schools.

By drawing together the SALSUS findings for smoking, drinking and drug use, it highlights where there are common themes across the three behaviours and where there are differences depending on the substance.

Three individual topic reports on Tobacco, Alcohol and Drug Use accompany this publication and provide more detail on the findings for each substance. All accompanying publications can be found at: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Research/by-topic/health-community-care/social-research/SALSUS

The research was commissioned by the Scottish Government and carried out by Ipsos MORI Scotland.
