Ecstasy Use study

Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS)

Researchers from the National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) would like to speak to people who have used ecstasy/MDMA or other stimulant drugs (e.g. MDA, cocaine, methamphetamine) in Perth in the past 12 months.

Confidential interviews are being conducted with one of our friendly researchers over the phone or via secure videoconferencing between late April and July, 2020. Interviews take less than an hour and you will be asked about your experience and perceptions of ecstasy/MDMA and other drugs in Perth recently.

You will be reimbursed $40 for your time and expertise.

Sharing your knowledge will help us understand current issues faced by people who use drugs and drug trends in Perth. This research may be used to influence government policies on a range of issues including harm reduction and treatment.

Interviews are confidential and anonymous. You may use a false name.

This study has been approved by the Curtin Human Research Ethics Committee (HR27/2015).

Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 interviews will NOT be conducted face-to-face. Instead, participants can choose to do the interview over the phone or via secure end-to-end encrypted video conferencing (with or without your video connected).

To see if you are eligible contact Jodie on 0416 303 461 or email

Any details you provide via voicemail or text message will remain completely confidential.
