Druglink article 1990 – Helping the sniffers by Richard Ives

They are not mutually exclusive. Workers should carefully tailor their mix of responses to the local situation and to the particular individual(s) involved to avoid risk of intervention backfiring into increased and/or more dangerous sniffing.
