The Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) is a national monitoring system for ecstasy and related drugs that is intended to identify emerging trends of local and national interest in the markets for these drugs. The EDRS is based on the Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) methodology and consists of interviews with people who regularly use ecstasy and other stimulant, as well as analysis and examination of indicator data sources related to ecstasy and other related drugs. EDRS is designed to be sensitive to trends, providing data in a timely manner, rather than describing issues in extensive detail.
You can access EDRS Reports via the following links:
Drug Trends National Reports
