Event description

Description

Drug Consumption Rooms (aka Enhanced Harm Reduction Centres) – FREE (2 hours)

Drug Consumption Rooms (DCR) have been in operation worldwide since the mid 1980’s to respond to various drug-related issues. With numerous harms associated to drug use including annual rises in drug-related deaths and various risks to public safety from street injecting, to name just a few, why has the UK not yet established a DCR? This 2-hour session will explore the DCR phenomenon, why they cause a split in opinion and whether they are a feasible way forward within Wales. At the end of the session, the attendee’s will be able to:

* Describe what DCRs are including their aims and objectives

* Discuss issues and possible solutions associated to drug use

* Debate as to whether DCR services are feasible in Wales

* Identify the fears and solutions to a DCR being established in Wales

Please note failure to attend without notice will incur a fee of £10
