Latest trends and social, legal and political responses.
Special issues: young people; social exclusion; public expenditure.
Two press releases summarise the main findings:
Main release: some ‘cautious optimism’ but beware of complacency, warns agency.
Special focus on young people: rising concern about ‘binge’ drinking and intensive drug use among the young and vulnerable.
Where to begin:
The main contents page offers easy access to the various sections of the report.

A separate report offers a comprehensive overview of the drugs problem in the acceding and candidate countries.
This annual report is based on information provided to the EMCDDA by the EU Member States and Norway (participating in the work of the EMCDDA since 2001) in the form of a national report. The statistical data reported here relate to the year 2001 (or the last year available) for Chapter 1, ‘Drug situation’, but may refer to 2002 or later for developments in the area of ‘Responses to drug use’ and for the ‘Selected issues’.
