Educational Drugs Tour

Recommended Posts

Whatever happened to the old 'Just say no' advice. It was good advice and a simple message to understand.

 

My bold. It was, as Sheffieldism has already pointed out, completely useless advice and demonstrably an abject failure.

 

Do try and keep up Sid.

Thanks everyone the info was great, im just in process of getting in touch with SHED now. Do reformed addicts work with SHED or is just a team of trained staff? Iam actually after fully reformed addicts, and heroin addicts in particular. The project is for a short educational film for south yorkshire police, hopefully to be used as a tool in schools and other educational purposes.

 

Thanks again

 

I can't speak for SHED specifically, but its fairly common in substance misuse services for some of the professionals working there to be ex-users themselves who have gone on to gain qualifications and become drugs advisors/support workers/counsellors etc. "trained staff" and "reformed addict" aren't mutually exclusive.

 

Good luck with your project!

Kids today would probably just go and ask the "reformed addict" for a list of his/hers dealers that they used to get their gear from. Refer a friend discount too, probably.

 

Hehehe, or get him back on the gear.
