Summary

First published in 1999, Illegal Drug Use in the United Kingdom provides a comprehensive review of information and interventions available in drug misuse in order to inform local drug policies. In keeping with the policy documents in both Scotland and England, the volume covers the breadth of possible interventions, rather than health care alone. Separate chapters review educational, policing and counselling approaches and discuss work with special groups such as rural drug users, sex workers and club-goers. Although there are specialist textbooks on all aspects of addiction, this is the first text-book to bring together information in the framework used in the policy documents in the UK.
