Abstract

This report explores how data on drug use are captured through surveys of targeted populations in recreational settings. The benefits and challenges of monitoring drug use in recreational settings are identified, as are emergent data sources and methodological innovations. Learning from past and present best practice in relation to monitoring drug use in recreational settings across the European Union (EU), while looking to the future for emerging trends and new challenges, helps to capture more accurate, timely and meaningful data from countries. Findings from research activities and the best -practice case studies incorporated in this report are crucial to understanding the ‘drug situation’ in a rapidly changing world.
