Access denied Seeking participants in Northern Rivers, NSW for study on living with a drug habit
Hi there ,

I'm a researcher based at Curtin University's National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) In Melbourne, Australia. Iím involved with a study that explores peopleís experiences of living with an alcohol or other drug (AOD) habit, dependence or addiction, including how they make decisions about drug use, drug treatment and everyday life. We're now seeking participants in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lismore, Mullumbimby or Nimbin (Northern Rivers, NSW, Australia). We're especially keen to talk to people who identify their primary drug as any one or more of the following:
  • Stimulants, e.g. ice, cocaine, speed, crack cocaine
  • MDMA
  • Prescription drugs, e.g. benzos, Valium, Xanax, serepax
  • *Alcohol

Participation involves a confidential audio-recorded interview of about an hour and you will receive $50 for your time. The interviews will be conducted in a location of your choice in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lismore, Mullumbimby or Nimbin. The focus of the interview will be on living with and managing a drug habit/dependence/addiction, experiences of drug use, treatment experiences (where relevant), everyday life and feelings about the future.

The information we gather will be used to develop an informative website for members of the public, and health professionals and policy makers. The study has been approved by the Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee.

Anyone who is interested in participating or would like more information can contact me directly at Kiran.pienaar@curtin.edu.au or on 03 9079 2204. Thanks very much for your interest.

Best wishes,
Kiran Pienaar
