Coming soon: European Drug Report 2023 to be released on 16 June

Latest annual trends report from the EMCDDA

How many new drugs were detected in Europe over the last year? What are the latest trends in drug production and trafficking? What substances are causing the most concern today? Find out more when the EU drugs agency (EMCDDA) launches its European Drug Report 2023: Trends and Developments in a press conference in Brussels on 16 June

Based on data from 29 countries (EU 27, Türkiye and Norway), the report delivers the latest overview of the drug situation in Europe, exploring long-term trends and emerging threats. The comprehensive analysis covers drug use and supply as well as drug-related harms and responses to them. 

The depth and scope of the analysis has been considerably expanded this year, with a wider range of topics covered and in greater detail. For the first time, the report is delivered in a new modular digital-first format, offering innovative ways to access and interact with the content. The resource is designed to be read across a range of devices (PCs, mobiles, tablets) and will be available in 25 EU languages

Over 100 interactive graphics complement the analysis, while interactive dashboards allow users to visualise data and trends at European and national level. Data journalists and researchers will be able to access the underlying data for easier sharing and re-use. Accompanying the report is the 2023 Statistical Bulletin containing national datasets.
