Pharmaceutical drug use among police detainees

24 Feb 2012
Description

Recent survey by the Australian Institute of Criminology regarding the use of both illegal and legal pharmacutical drugs by police detainees.
In light of increased concern regarding the illegal use of prescription medication and the extent of the diversion of pharmaceuticals into the black market, the AIC incorporated a set of new questions into its third quarterly DUMA survey in 2011.
These new questions were administered to 825 adult police detainees with the aim of providing updated information about the prevalence of pharmaceutical drug use, the extent to which such drugs are obtained through illegal or illegitimate means, and perceptions of their availability.
