This is the first annual report of the Drug Misuse Research Division of the Health Research Board. The primary objective of this report is to provide Department of Heatlh and the drug treatment centres who provide the data with ongoing information. The report takes the form of straightforward analysis of the data received. It presents data collected from attenders at drug treatment centres during 1995. Data from the two main, Total Treatment Contacts and First Treatment Contacts, area analysed on the basis of socio-demographic characteristics, aspects of the client's history of drug use, and facets of the client's injecting and needle-sharing practices.

The report is divided into two sections and the data area analysed in terms of the two geographic areas: Greater Dublin - Eastern Health Board; and the seven other health board areas. Regarding the first of these areas, the number of cases, as distinct from persons, in the total treatment group has risen by 615 or 20.7% and in the first contact group, the number has risen from 1,150 in 1994 to 1,396 in 1995 - a rise of 246 or 21% on the 1994 figures. Regarding the second general geographic area, the number of cases, as distinct from persons, in the total treatment group in 1995 was 803 and the number in the first contact group was 491.
