Spice is a highly addictive and toxic drug, the effects of which are visible in the city centre and beyond, with regular reporting in local and national press.
Sheffield DACT has created a number of materials to support professionals working with people using Spice in Sheffield and to support people using Spice. This includes harm reduction messages, key messages for workers, and leaflets for people using Spice giving them information on where to access support.
