Excited to share that our #GHB paper is now out in @AddictionJrnl.
With @RoseCrossin @foruharmoayeri @DebbieScott16 and team @TurningPointAU @MonashAddiction
Trends in GHB‐related harms 2012‐2018 in Victoria
Spoiler alert, 147% rise
Highlights here->
What we did: looked at ambulance callouts for #GHB alone vs for co-use w other drugs (eg. #methamphetamine, #alcohol)
What we found: Overall #GHB presentations increased 147%, peaking in 2017 at 1339 callouts. This increase was largely driven by #GHB+#methamphetamine use together
#methamphetamine #ice co-use was >6x more likely to result in ambulance callouts than co-use with other drugs e.g. alcohol; and more #mentalhealth symptoms e.g. psychosis or anxiety.
