I found the pack fairly simple to use, but had problems getting the CD-Rom to run. 

I have seen the card games used in training before. However, these are very simple to use and seem to be more aimed more towards school children than adults. 

The most valuable part of the pack is the leaflets in different languages, but I could not judge the accuracy of the information provided. Having found many incorrect images of drugs I hope the leaflets and language are more accurate. 

The information sheets on different substances are too basic. I was puzzled to read that you could contract HIV and Aids by injecting amphetamine.  It made me feel the drug was the cause of infection rather than the sharing of injecting equipment. Not a pack I would use.
