Current research


SURG members are currently engaged in a range of externally funded projects.  These include studies investigating: how to improve the outcomes of treatment resistant heroin users, the (predicted and actual) impact of minimum pricing for alcohol on drinkers and their families in Wales, and the misuse of over-the-counter and prescription-only medication (including opioid substitution treatment). SURG members are also investigating substance misuse and related behaviours among university students as part of the Higher Education Alcohol and Drugs (HEADS) programme.
