Reports and submissions

Drug use trends, drug development and markets historically move faster than research and policy responses.

Our work with Anex and Lucid provides us with on-the-ground knowledge. Using this front-line experience, we collaborate with community groups, health and emergency service organisations, research bodies, the private sector and governments to translate this knowledge into action.

For instance the Victorian Government responded to early reports about increasing crystal methamphetamine use in 2013 by commissioning a community assessment of the effects the drug was having across the state.

Anex was approached to conduct the assessment. The report from this assessment is due to be handed to government in 2014.

Penington Institute analyses the best evidence based research to inform debate about what does and doesn’t work and provides a base for effective policy and community response.

Below are a selection of just some of our reports, undertaken by our programs:
