The project analysed wastewater in over 60 European cities and towns (hereinafter referred to as ‘cities’) including Cyprus to explore the drug-taking habits of the population.

The results provide a valuable snapshot of the drug flow through the cities involved, revealing marked geographical variations. More specifically, the project revealed a picture of distinct geographical and temporal patterns of drug use across European cities.
