In 2001, the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (ADAC) conducted the largest single study of Indigenous people who inject drugs in Australia. The size of the study (over 300 participants) has enabled ADAC to collect enough data to establish some of the drug use trends and injecting practices of Aboriginal people in metropolitan Adelaide who inject drugs. ADAC has already begun to use this information to assist the Indigenous community in developing interventions and responses to drug related harms. This report has been produced to provide a summary of the aims and objectives of the project, the methodology used, a brief description of the main findings, and preliminary recommendations.
