The NZ Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring (NZADAM) project report for 2006 is available on the Police website http://www.police.govt.nz/resources/2007/nzadam-annual-report/
NZADAM measures the drug and alcohol use among people who have been recently apprehended by Police (for any reasons, not
just drug specific reasons).
The monitoring project has completed its first year of research in four police watch houses, Whangarei, Henderson,
Hamilton and Dunedin.
NZADAM is managed by Police who fund the project. Police contract Health Outcomes International who interview arrestees
and analyse the data.
The data being collected is used by Police and The National Drugs Intelligence Bureau in a wide range of analysis.
All detainees volunteer to take part in the study and their information is confidential.
