A Good Practice Guide for Employing People who use Drugs

This guide has practical tools and suggestions on how to meaningfully involve people who use drugs (PWUD) in peer led interventions. It provides useful examples of: efforts to make the workplace more accessible and supportive of staff who use drugs; how to tackle drug use at work through supportive policies; supervision; dealing with inappropriate behaviours; how to manage chronic health conditions, relapse and burnout and more.  PWUD have the right to be employed and policies that routinely exclude PWUD from the workplace are discriminatory.

"This will be a useful document for anyone working in the drugs field, creating peer led projects, or for user groups needing guidance with volunteers, for peer support workers and employers willing to engage PWUDs" (Peer worker,UK) This guide has been developed by the Alliance as part of the Community Action on Harm Reduction project.
