Drug Trends

Drug Trends is an internationally renowned research program that is key to identifying emerging problems in substance use in Australia and providing impetus for policy responses and intervention. It draws on multiple information sources, including annual interviews with people who regularly use illicit drugs, and has been operating in Australia since 1996.   
In Queensland, the research is coordinated by the team at University of Queensland's Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR), and overseen nationally by UNSW's National Drug & Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC). Drug Trends is funded by the Australian Government under the Drug and Alcohol Program.
