New booklet available 'Use Your Head – Harm Reduction Information – Legal Highs or Otherwise'.
At the North Inner City Drugs Task Force Seminar 'Not For Human Consumption' – Unregulated 'Head Shop' Substances and Their Risks in Dublin on 6th May 2010; Tony Duffin Director of Ana Liffey Drug Project presented the newly developed booklet 'Use Your Head – Harm Reduction Information – Legal Highs or Otherwise'.
This booklet provides harm reduction information for individuals using psychoactive drugs – legal highs or otherwise. Issues covered within the booklet include general harm reduction information, useful contact telephone numbers, facts on overdose, the recovery position, rescue breathing and chest compressions. The booklet has been developed in conjunction with Ana Liffey's Peer Support Programme and other stakeholders. The response to the booklet has been extremely positive with over 2000 pre-publication orders from a range of community, voluntary and statutory drug services across Ireland.
The booklet is the latest publication from the 'Duck, Dive & Survive' series, which is recognised by the European Commission under the European Action on Drugs Initiative.
The booklet has now been made available on line for people to download via Ana Liffey's website here. If anybody would like paper copies of the booklet please email firstname.lastname@example.org and Ana Liffey will be happy to send them out to you.
