The report describes trends in drug injection in the EU Member States, Norway and Turkey between 2000 and 2011, through an analysis of data on those admitted to drug treatment. Results indicate that current drug injection, including its incidence, has declined in recent years in Europe. While heroin remains the drug most frequently involved in drug injection, data show how drug injectors are now more likely to be using stimulants than in the past.
