Many Fixers know that crime goes hand in hand with drug and alcohol misuse. Some have personal experiences of the consequences, either after getting involved in crime ... or as the victim of crime. Many Fixers have campaigned on substance misuse, which - by it's nature - may be illegal or lead to illegal behaviour. Others are here because they have been victims of, or witnesses to, other forms of illegality.
