Druglink article 1995 – Peer education among crack users: Not so cracked by Tim Bottonley, Mike Smith and Chris Wibberley

A project run by a community drug team near Manchester involved recruiting crack users to research local crack use. Eight volunteers interviewed over 200 crack users. Though crack-related problems were common, most people were not in touch with services. The research pointed to ways services could make themselves more attractive to crack users. Its success suggests crack using volunteers working as peer educators could be one of the best vehicles for delivering services to this group of problem drug users.
