The Australian Government Department of health defines Emerging Drugs as: new psychoactive drugs appearing on the market. They include novel drug classes which are potentially harmful. They also include new formulations of older drug classes for which problems related to their use are emerging. The situation is rapidly changing. There are hundreds of emerging drugs of concern, and this number is increasing every year.
Planning for a Prompt Response Network (PRN) is currently underway. An informal group of leading researchers, alcohol and drug clinicians, and toxicologists from Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney are involved. More information will be available shortly.
