The Drug Experience: Heroin (Part 1)

During this Background Briefing we set the scene for forthcoming Briefings on the heroin experience. We emphasise the necessity to consider the role of drug, set and setting when considering the impact heroin has on lives.

“It is a drug that is so controversial that when two Scottish researchers published a paper that identified 126 long-term heroin users in Glasgow who were not experiencing the health and social problems normally associated with the drug, there was an outcry from certain circles. Some people considered it irresponsible that such research was published.”
