Noteworthy phenomena and emerging trends in illegal drugs (2010-2011)

Tendances n° 78, OFDT, 6 p.
February 2012

The twelfth edition of the TREND (Emerging Trends and New Drugs) scheme took place in 2010. The main goal of TREND, established by the OFDT (French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction) in 1999, is to identify and describe changes in trends and emerging phenomena in illegal or misused psychotropic substances. This issue of Tendances will also include the first set of data available on the first half of 2011, as provided by the seven local coordinating entities (Bordeaux, Lille, Marseille, Metz, Paris, Rennes and Toulouse).

This issue of Tendances is divided into three main sections. The first will examine the only major emerging phenomenon identified in 2010, the second will be devoted to describing recent trends and the third will examine changes in the use of the different substances monitored by the TREND scheme.
