asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many specialist drug dependency units are currently operating in Scottish hospitals.

The term "drug dependency unit" is not used in Scotland. Drug misusers in Scotland who require hospital care are usually treated as outpatients at mental hospitals and psychiatric units.
