Druglink article 1993 – Crew 2000 Peer coalition in action by Peter McDermott and Willie McBride

In Edinburgh, drug users and local young people together with drug workers have formed a coalition to inform their peers about drugs and have focused initially on the local club scene. Their experience of the use of Temazepam by club goers led to the production of a leaflet targeted on this issue. Such coalitions are a way of reaching the large number of people using drugs which professional outreach initiatives do not have the resources and/or skills to reach.
