This is a workshop on crack cocaine and safer pipe use, and of course includes all the information needed to run a successful harm reduction focused workshop with clients and/or staff.

The pack includes:

  • Outline of the scope of the workshop
  • List of required equipment
  • Details of how to make 5 items of smoking kit
  • Explanatory photos
  • Associated harm reduction advice
  • Further group discussion topics
  • Advice on running the workshop
  • Information on recycling cocaine residue
  • Legal issues for the workshop (UK)
  • Ready made feedback form
