About us

DrugScope is the national membership organisation for the drug sector and the UK's leading independent centre of expertise on drugs and drug use. We are a registered and independent charity.

DrugScope was formed in 2000 from the merger of two organisations, the Institute for the Study of Drug Dependence (ISDD), established in 1968, and the Standing Conference on Drug Abuse (SCODA), established in 1973.

DrugScope is a registered charity (number 255030) and a company limited by guarantee (number 926236).

All DrugScope's work is shaped by our core values and beliefs.
