Summary

This report investigates the social experience of heroin users in regard to housing as a prelude to establishing what housing policies better assist heroin users in the community. The research project address three primary questions: i. In what ways if any, do accommodation options affect the wellbeing and social experience of heroin users, ii. In what ways does current service provision for long-term heroin users address their housing needs? iii. What changes in current service provision and housing policies would improve the social opportunities of heroin users?
