'Women and drugs'

I spoke at the first Women and drugs conference held in England in 1995,
addressing the absence of services provided for Crack cocaine users.
After this speech Prime Minister John Major provided £16 million to meet
their needs.
My speech went on to be published by SCODA ,,and was available until
recent times throughout the net in many languages but seems now to have
been removed.
Only one site seems to currently provide it.

Below is the link to that site.

'Love on the Rocks'

Is an article published in 1994, by Women's Health magazine.
In this article I outline the relationship women have with
Crack/Cocaine, how the drug seduces them to become
emotionally and mentally dependant.

          'Women and Crack: the untold story'.
          Published by the Black Drug Workers Forum
          In this article I address the media propaganda
          created to view Crack as a drug used by
          Black people and Women as unfit mothers
          and highly sexually.

Scottish Advisory Committee On Drug Misuse:
Psychostimulant Working Group Report


Case study of a service for women stimulant users

7.14 Louise Clarke of Higher Insight has worked with
women crack users in the East of London over the
past 10 years. In developing services for women she
argues that service providers must take into account
women's need for anonymity and confidentiality and
their need for childcare support, particularly when
attending services. Women may prefer to work with a
female drugs worker. She also notes that setting up a
drug project at a venue like a community centre where
child care provision is already established can overcome
some of the fears women have about attending a service
that is labelled as a 'drug project'.



Media

I have spoken to the press on many occasion,much of the time my words were mis-used and even added to, I therefore have only selected a few media articles that I am willing to share that I took part in.

'Run Around'

My first ever client warrents her own page,
Much of the knowledge I have gained has been
via her and in much of my writings and speeches
I have utilized her experiences as an example of
women users plights. She is extremely intelligent
and whilst in prison during the 90's she produced
a comic to help others understand the life of
many users.
I named her long ago 'Run around' to give her
anonimity;although she proudly tells many this is
her I speak of.

Chinese herbs Jia Wei Xiao Yao Wan


These are the Chinese herbs I recommend for withdrawal from Crack/Cocaine or any drug. 
Click on the image and it will link you to a web address to purchase them. I do not know the providers, I just randomly chose the link to start you off and the price seems reasonable.
