New annual review of the TREND scheme on drug use and users in a health crisis content - Tendances No. 147 press release



Tendances n° 147 press release, OFDT, 2 p.
December 2021

Since 1999, the monitoring carried out by the Emerging Trends and New Drugs (TREND) scheme of the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (OFDT) has made it possible to describe the population groups that are particularly dependent on psychoactive substances and to identify emerging phenomena in the field of illicit drugs and diverted medicines. This information, gathered from a wide range of stakeholders (users, social and health workers, law enforcement officers, etc.), focuses on urban fringe spaces (streets, squats, user reception facilities, drug dealing areas) and techno party settings (alternative, commercial, gay, gay-friendly recreational settings). All of the findings are intended to inform professionals in contact with users and the public responses that are put in place.

The observations of the scheme relating to 2020 and the beginning of 2021 are now presented in an issue of the publication Tendances (available in French here), which is published along with analyses of local situations produced by the 8 TREND coordinating sites located in Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Metz, Paris, Rennes and Toulouse. Putting this data into perspective makes it possible to assess the situation during the health crisis and to understand, in line with the bulletins published in April and May 2020, the changes in use and treatment during this period.
