Drogues. Vers un nouveau monde, Bertrand Leibovici, 2021

Drogues. Vers un nouveau monde Bertrand Leibovici (Lebeau) Editions L'Esprit Frappeur, 2021, 308 pages.   Préface Professeur Amine Benyamina J’ai rencontré Bertrand Leibovici Lebeau il y a une vingtaine d’années. Je savais qu’il avait milité avec ardeur, dans les années 90, pour la réduction des risques liés à l’usage de drogues et pour les traitements de substitution opiacés. Et qu’il soutenait les usagers de drogues organisés dans des groupes d’autosupport.
