  1. Decline in intravenous drug use among treatment-seeking opiate users.

    Article - En anglais

    Opiate users seeking treatment during similar time periods in 1986 (n = 60) and 1988 (n = 82) did not differ significantly with regard to demographic factors, length of addiction, use of cocaine, history of alcohol problems, or indices of depression.

    In 1988, however, users reported significantly lower rates of current intravenous drug use than was reported in 1986: 39% in 1988, compared to 14% in 1986, reported not currently using IV (khi2(1, N = 142) = 11,302, p <.001).

    For the combined periods, current IV users (n = 102) did not differ significantly from those who were not currently using IV (n = 40) with regard to demographic factors, size of habit, history of alcohol problems, or indices of depression.
