Illicit drug use is a major concern for communities, in particular the impact of drug-related harms of overdose, dependence, psychosis and (in some cases) violence.
As someone who understands the psychopharmacology of illicit drugs as well as the effectiveness of illicit drug interventions, Jarryd can provide evidence-based advice on harm reduction.
As part of 360Edge, a specialist alcohol and other drug consultancy, Jarryd has assisted in comprehensive reviews of alcohol and other drug services as well as government, not-for-profit and community interventions to reduce harms.
Jarryd was engaged by the UK-based Adam Smith Institute to provide a comprehensive review of evidence regarding drug checking facilities (known in Australia as ‘safe injecting rooms’). The resulting report summarises the international evidence-base for the intervention and was used to lobby MPs for law reform.
