This paper provides an example of an early warning system in relation to drug misuse. The ‘rapid audit’ reported here shows evidence of a spread of heroin use amongst young people which signals the need for action now to prevent this developing into a major problem. The report also suggests how a more systematic early warning system might be developed.
