CEWG Meeting Reports

The following reports are from the biannual meetings at which the network members discuss current and emerging problems of substance abuse. At the meetings, CEWG members present data on drug abuse from a variety of city, State, Federal, and other sources. These data are enhanced with information gathered through ethnographic research, focus groups, interviews, and other qualitative methods. This integration of quantitative with qualitative data provides invaluable insight into emerging drug use trends.
