Injecting Advice

Crack Pipe Workshop

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .

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 workshop may also be of interest to people currently smoking crack cocaine as it contains important information on keeping yourself safe.

This pack will help run a Safer Piping workshop for crack users and has been written in a way that even inexperienced workers will be able to pick it up and know enough to get a great discussion going with clients.
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
