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

Treatment data on club drugs and NPS


Nta published a report on trends in club drug use in november 2012
NTA published a report on trends in club drug use in November 2012

  • Definition of ‘club drug user’ in this report was any person in treatment since 2005/06 citing any of the following substances:

    • Ecstasy

    • Ketamine

    • 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

  • 4% of all new over-18s and 10% of all new under-18s in 2011/12

  • NDTMS data on club drugs and NPS

    NTA published a report on trends in club drug use in November 2012

    • General increasing trend, driven by increasing ketamine presentations and introduction of mephedrone. Ecstasy presentations have declined since 2005/06, but are starting to flatline

    • Relatively likely to leave treatment successfully and completion rates are improving over time

    • ‘Tend to be a group whose level of functioning is quite high’

    Treatment data on club drugs nps and injecting
    Treatment data on club drugs/NPS and injecting November 2012

    • 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
