The goal of the NACDA is to advise the Government on problem drug use in Ireland in relation to prevalence, prevention consequences and treatment based on our analysis and interpretation of research findings.

Executive Summary

 
This bulletin presents key findings on polydrug use (the use of more than one substance within a specific time period). It presents data collected in the All Ireland Drug Prevalence Survey 2006/2007 relating to polydrug use on a last month (current use) basis. The focus is on the combinations of both legal and illegal drugs based on information obtained from the second drug prevalence survey of households to be carried out in both Ireland and Northern Ireland. The bulletin also examines gender and age differences and the relationship between the use of a particular substance and the use of another substance.
