Fighting the bad attitudes on drug users in society

“Our initiative started some years ago in 2006.  The Swedish user union, Brukarföreningen, has been a wonderful example for us, motivating Finnish users, to start our own union.  As you might notice, the Finnish union has copied the logo from Sweden.  At the moment our union has around 100 members, but actively involved are around ten people.  The professional agency A-Klinikka foundation has supported and promoted our work, since we started.
