This research, undertaken by Scottish Drugs Forum and The University of Glasgow, is the first of its kind in Scotland, and aimed to determine use across a range of people including people who inject drugs, mental health service users, vulnerable young people, people affected by homelessness and men who have sex with men.
The report, 'Understanding the patterns of use, motives, and harms of New Psychoactive Substances in Scotland' gathered information from people who worked in services and also people who used NPS. Part of this research was undertaken by SDF's Peer Research Volunteers, people who have had their own history of substance use or who were otherwise peers of the target group.
The research covered motives for using NPS drugs, harms as a result of use, treatment experience, information needs and the impact of the Psychoactive Substances Act's introduction in June 2016.
