Australians’ Drug Use: Adapting to Pandemic Threats (ADAPT) Study

 18 May 2020

The Australians’ Drug Use: Adapting to Pandemic Threats (ADAPT) Study is exploring the short and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Australians who use illicit drugs.

Led by researchers from the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) at UNSW Sydney, ADAPT is one of the first studies globally to talk with people who regularly use illicit drugs about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Share your experiences via the confidential ADAPT survey and enter a prize draw to win one of 20 $100 GiftPay vouchers. The study team will keep you updated regularly with findings from the study and you can opt in to receive personalised, confidential results over time.

Your participation in this survey will ensure drug-related issues during COVID-19 are better understood, more accurately represented, and used to inform drug treatment and harm reduction in Australia.
