A bit about Substance Misuse Resources.

We are a public health creative practice; a collective of public health practitioners, writers, designers, and social marketing gurus, based in Liverpool City Centre, who write and design substance misuse resources and social marketing campaigns.

Using creativity, imagination and honest, balanced, non-judgemental information, we persuade, cajole, prod, tease and nudge people who use drugs and alcohol, into reducing health risks and making positive health choices.

We believe that in the same way we provide health information to reduce the harm associated with smoking and obesity; we should also take the same approach to legal and illegal drug use.

We've used that philosophy since the early '80s, when we created many of the HIT drug and alcohol leaflets and worked on some of the earliest AIDs awareness campaigns, and ecstasy harm reduction resources.

Using that knowledge and experience, we have developed a growing range of new drug and alcohol resources, which you can order directly from the Substance shop. If you need more bespoke resources, you can commission us to write and design resources targeted at your service users, and branded with your organisation's logo and contact details.

Well, that's enough about us - we hope we have given you a sense of what we are all about. If you need to order substance misuse resources for your organisation pop over to the Substance shop. If you have any questions, would like to commission a resource or chat about a campaign or project, you can call us on 07532 214 432 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We look forward to hearing from you!
