Understanding Substance use in a Covid 19 world
The National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre with collaborators have launched the Australians’ Drug Use: Adapting to Pandemic Threats (ADAPT) Study.
ADAPT is one of the largest online surveys of its kind in Australia, providing critical, timely information about how people who use illicit drugs can be supported during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The project, which commenced in late April, comprises an online cross-sectional survey of people who were regularly using illicit drugs prior to COVID-19. Embedded within this is a longitudinal cohort where participants can consent to complete follow up surveys in two months, four months, six months, one year, two years and three years.
