Searching information on drug research projects

This database contains information gathered in the course of the ERANID project during 2013 and 2014. Principally, it contains details of research projects on illicit drugs carried out since 2010 within the six ERANID countries and funded by the European Committee: Belgium; France; Italy; Portugal; The Netherlands; and the United Kingdom. However, this database will not capture all illicit drugs research carried out within a country.

• The IAD collects attributable data from (both agency-based and pharmacy-based) Needle and Syringe Programmes (NSP), the National Probation Service, Connexions and a range of additional tier 2 drugs services.
Initial identified needs
The Inter Agency Drug Misuse Database (IAD) was established in partnership with the Drug (and Alcohol) Action Teams in 1997 to support the need for local information on drug use. This system helps provides a comprehensive picture of drug use across Cheshire and Merseyside, identifying emerging issues and supporting the needs assessments and treatment planning processes.
