Video: Drugs & Demographics


Monday, February 28th, 2011

Most people think of drugs and young people, but the issue on the horizon is the growth in the number of older users; that is people over 55 years of age.

These are potentially life-long users who have worked and had families but are still using and find themselves at a crossroads, scared about getting older and still using, but equally scared about changing their lives. As they face up to age related health issues, relationships with their adult children and the prospect of needing care, they want to stop, but remain wary of the options that are generally configured for younger users.

Bristol Drugs Project aims to reduce drug and alcohol-related problems that damage individuals, families and communities, it is concerned with reducing harm, promoting change, challenging prejudice and maximising people’s potential.
