Patterns of drug use in Australia, 1985-95


Trends in drug use in Australia since 1985 are examined using the National Drug Strategy surveys. The report focuses on tobacco, alcohol and marijuana, but it also examines heroin, the psycho stimulants and other drugs such as tranquillisers, inhalants and steroids. The social correlates of drug use behaviours are also considered.
