New Drug Seminars

Seminar 6: New Drugs: New Drug Seminars: Treatment, Community Interventions and Harm Reduction

The 6th event in our ESRC funded seminar series focuses on treatment, community interventions and harm reduction approaches to new drugs (NPS/HED/IPED etc).

The seminar will discuss latest guidelines and best practice on the topic, but extends this to take a critical perspective on how and why particular approaches are prioritised, and what role evidence plays in development of interventions. We will also seek to better understand opportunities for users and the marketplace to complement our suite of responses, and how policy environments may facilitate or present barriers to particular intervention actions.
