Sheffield is a high crack area. Tackling Crack: A National Plan identified it as such and several studies have highlighted the problems the area faces (Home Office, 2002; McGauley, 1994; Foers, 2001; Heal, 2002). Though much is being done to address the problem, little is known about who is using what and how. Strange and McGauley uncover a worrying increase in crack use among the homeless and the increasing use of crack among problem alcohol and opiate users.
