Hi everyone

Here is a new study, launched today, for Australians who use drugs. I'm one of the co-investigators.
The study is led by Dr Amy Peacock, who leads the Drug Trends program of research at NDARC, UNSW - my old employer :)
The study has received ethics approval.
The study begins TODAY! End date - it's a 3 year cohort study. Not sure yet when the first recruitment period ends but I'll update the thread when it does.
Exclusion criteria - you need to be living in Australia. You need to have used drugs (any illegal ones) monthly or more often in the year 2019 to qualify.
There are prize draws for participation as mentioned below.
Survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. You can choose to do the one off survey or be contacted later for follow-up surveys.

See below for all the details!

Any questions, just ask.

Australians’ Drug use: Adapting to Pandemic Threats (ADAPT) Study

Researchers from the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre are looking for Australians aged 18 or older who used illicit drugs (e.g., cannabis, MDMA, heroin, non-prescribed benzodiazepines) regularly in 2019 to share their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Participants who complete the confidential online survey can enter a prize draw to win one of 20 $100 GiftPay vouchers.

The survey covers a range of topics, including COVID-19 experiences, drug use, harm reduction behaviour, and access to treatment and support services.

You can opt to complete one 20-min survey or multiple short surveys over 3 years.

Your participation will help to minimise harms experienced by people who use drugs and to develop tips and strategies to stay safe and healthy during this time.
