Youth and Drugs (Partner research)

As part of the Project Capacity Building for Lifespan Focused Substance Use Disorder Research in Ukraine, the Foundation developed an electronic research questionnaire and translated, adapted and licensed the English-language diagnostic tools used in this study.

Monitoring the spread of addictive behavior among young people in Kharkiv "Youth and Drugs" has been carried out by sociologists of the Kharkiv National University of Internal Affairs together with the Sociological Association of Ukraine since 1995. Since 2017, in parallel with the traditional face-to-face survey technology, Internet survey technology has been used.
