This study is a survey of 200 individuals in the ACT who use methamphetamine. We aim to estimate the extent of methamphetamine use in the ACT, describe patterns of methamphetamine use, document the health and wellbeing of people who use the drug, and understand barriers to their accessing treatment and other health services.
