Use of drugs and drug checking in the nightlife setting

Promoted by the Addiction Department of the ASL TO4, the research aims at investigating the needs of young people who use illegal drugs in the harm reduction perspective. It includes 1) a series of individual face-to-face interviews with young people attending music festivals and events and 2) the analysis of a chat of users on a mobile phone app. Both studies will also investigate the impact of the Covid-19 and lockdown measures on drug use.
