New Psychoactive Substance Exposure among NYC Nightclub and Festival Attendees
Funded by: National Institute on Drug Abuse
Project dates: August 2023 - May 2027
Principal Investigator: Palamar, Joseph

This study will estimate the prevalence and correlates of exposure to new psychoactive substances and other drugs and associated adverse effects among nightclub and dance festival attendees in New York City. Saliva testing will be conducted to determine unintentional drug exposure and to build profiles of new drugs that emerge. Results will be rapidly disseminated to inform prevention and harm reduction not only among this population but also in the general population.
