Abstract

Services still have a long way to go in attracting and meeting the needs of black and ethnic minority drug users, while messages of health and prevention often go unheard or unheeded. In this new research Nirmal Kumari talks to young and old generic Indians1 to uncover very different perceptions of drug use. Understanding differences is vital to drug prevention and treatment. In this pioneering study, Kumari demonstrates how services can become culturally competent through research and training and by embracing new approaches to health and well‐being. Discover the practicalities of yoga and Ayurdeva in this unique blend of research, practice, mind, body and spirit.
