Many young refugees and asylum seekers experience traumatic incidents prior to their arrival in the UK, including persecution, the death of - or separation from - members of their families, beatings, rape and torture. In many cases, the journey to the UK is long, difficult and dangerous. Arrival is a relief, but can lead to a new set of stresses.

This report details how the lives of young refugees and asylum seekers in the UK are likely to be characterised by circumstances - summarised below - which have been identified as risk factors for the development of problematic drug use.
