A socio-epidemiological study on the nature and extent of, and the risks involved in using ecstasy and other party drugs at dance events. Structure of the report: Chapter 1 describes the methods and techniques used for gathering the data for this study. Chapter Z describes the setting, that is to say, the circumstances at the parties. This chapter opens with a brief outline of the development of house culture in the Netherlands. This is followed by a description of the locations and the basic facilities. It goes on to examine whether the exogenous circumstances adhere to the guidelines set out in the memorandum City Hall and House': to what extent is the capacity to accommodate party goers exceeded; what is the situation with respect to the temperature, the humidity, and the noise level at a parry; what facilities are provided for obtaining food and drink? Finally, three important peripheral facilities that are also included in the recommendations of the memorandum Citv Hall and House': security services, First Aid and the Safe House Campaign. Chapter 3 looks at the set, the party goers who attend at the large-scale dance events. This chapter discusses the demographic characteristics of party goers, their musical preferences, their behaviour in relation to parry going, and their behaviour at these parties. Chapter 4 focuses on the substance use of party goers. We first describe the extent to which party goers use substances at large-scale dance events in general. This first part considers, not only the use of MDMA and MDMA-analogs, it also looks at the use of other known legal and illegal substances. The second part of this chapter describes the extent and nature of the use of ecstasy and ecstasy-analogs. It looks at the circumstances of initial use and the prevalence figures. Next, it examines the frequency and duration of use, the quantities and types of pills used, patterns of use, the social circumstances related to use, and the combined use of ecstasy and other substances. The third part of Chapter 4 deals with the use of amphetamines. The structure here is the same as for ecstasy. Chapter 5 compares the most important findings of the previous chapters about large-scale dance events with the findings from the study in regular clubs and discotheques. Chapter 6 discusses health, health problems and risks. A general description is followed by a description of the factors (party behaviour, substance use and/or circumstances at parties) that can affect health. We conclude the chapter with a number of risk profiles that have emerged from the analyses. Chapter 7 presents the summary and conclusions of the study. In Chapter 8. we make recommendations for policy concerning dance events and for preventive measures, and we put forward suggestions for further research. Finally, we have added five appendices; the last of which is a glossary of all the terms that we feel require further explanation.
