Please note there is no Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) report for the Northern Territory in 2011. This is because while ecstasy use is occurring in the Northern Territory, it appears the frequency of use is too low to recruit a sample for the EDRS. Participants in the EDRS are required to be regular ecstasy users, that is to have used ecstasy on at least six occasions in the six months prior to interview. In 2011, only 11 such people were recruited in the Northern Territory.
Please find attached instead the April 2012 EDRS Bulletin, which gives an overview of drug use trends in the Northern Territory and covers the issues related to recruiting a sample population for the EDRS.
