Junkies, Ex-User, Substituierte (JES) / Germany

25 years of building alliances without losing ideals

„Junkies, Ex-User, Substituierte (JES) is a relatively old organisation, founded in 1989.  We are a National Association of drug users, former users and people in opiate substitution treatment. JES is special because all users are considered equal: no matter if people are currently using, have quit, or are currently in treatment.  However, there are series of common aspects and common principles all of us stand for: ’For a life of human dignity with drugs’.
