  1. The prevalence of drug use in urban Aboriginal communities.

    Article - En anglais

    The use of both licit and illicit drugs has been identified as a major health issue for Australian Aborigines.

    However, data on the proportion of people who use such drugs is scant.

    This cross-sectional survey of a randomly selected sample of urban Aboriginal people provides information on the use of the drugs alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, heroin as well as petrol sniffing.

    Overall, a significantly smaller proportion of Aboriginal people were found to be current alcohol drinkers compared to non-Aboriginal Australians.

    A larger proportion of these drinkers were, however, found to be drinking at levels that were hazardous to their health.

    A significantly greater proportion of people from the Aboriginal sample were also found to be smokers compared to their non-Aboriginal counterparts.
