Drugs Wheel - Updated for an international audience
Feb 19, 2021
A new version of the Drugs Wheel developed by Mark Adley has been released. The resource is a model for classifying drugs to assist workers in simplifying the drugs landscape. With more and more novel psychoactive substances continuing to appear on the drug market, it can be difficult to know how to provide harm reduction advice. By using a resource like the Drugs Wheel, harm reduction information can be given by category of substance, meaning that workers don’t need to know in-depth details of every compound in order to provide some basic harm reduction advice.This version features established drugs in the outer ring, and the newer drugs in the inner ring.
