NDTMS data on club drugs and NPS
  • Historically, the NDTMS Core Data Set has added individual substances to the list of available drug codes with each refresh
  • Mephedrone was added to the CDS in 2010/11, so we now have three years’ worth of data, as well as data on more established club drugs (ecstasy, ketamine etc.)
  • For 2013/14, we have added a series of new codes which describe NPS by their effects rather than naming individual substances:
  • 8800 NPS Other – predominantly stimulant
  • 8801 NPS Other – predominantly hallucinogenic
  • 8802 NPS Other – predominantly dissociative
  • 8803 NPS Other – predominantly sedative or opioid
  • 8804 NPS Other – predominantly cannabis
  • 8805 NPS Other – effects different to available classifications or not stated

        • GHB/GBL
        • Methamphetamine
        • Mephedrone (since introduction to CDS in 2010/11)
  • Estimated one million people in England and Wales used one or more of the above in 2011/12 (CSEW)
  • 4,500 over-18s and 2,000 under-18s in treatment for club drugs in 2011/12

Treatment data on club drugs/NPS and injecting
  • Club drugs report highlighted that rates of injecting among club drug users increased from 6% to 8%, bucking the general decreasing injecting trend
  • Can be difficult to determine definitively from NDTMS data if people are injecting these drugs, particularly where reported adjunctively to heroin
  • However, particularly high rates observed among methamphetamine users (22%) and GHB users (11%), even where these were the only reported substances
  • Up to this point, relatively low rates of injecting reported among clients in treatment for mephedrone (5%) – although much higher where heroin use also indicated
