Book DrugDilemaAustralia’s drug debate is reaching a critical point. Feeling compelled to “do something” and believing that current policies don’t work, some state governments are seeking to introduce heroin injecting rooms as possibly the first step in a general liberalisation of the drug laws.

Holland and Switzerland – which have done just this-are cited as examples to follow.

In this book, medical experts, social commentators and drug counsellors take a closer look at the European experience and the arguments in favour of “harm minimisation” and find them seriously flawed.

But there are alternatives which are working.
