Global Drug Survey Releases Harm Reduction Guide

Global-Drug-SurveyThe Global Drug Survey, founded by Dr Adam Winstock, today released the results of its 2014 survey in the form of a fairly comprehensive and practical harm reduction guide, called ‘The Highway Code.’

The harm reduction strategies included in the guide were suggested by GDS in this year’s survey, and then the most effective were voted for by the more than 80,000 respondents. Designed such that strategies would be chosen by the actual users of a drug, each was rated by the percentage of respondents who use the strategy, their impression on whether it positively or negatively impacts pleasure from its use and their perceived importance of  the strategy for harm reduction.

You can find out more about the results of the survey as well as links to the guides separated by drug here, and the full guide in one place here.
