DOTS: A New Approach to Tracking the Drug Crisis
"There is a lot of mystery, fear, and confusion in the current overdose crisis. The DOTS program is a brilliant corrective providing objective evidence about the drugs involved in these cases,” said Dr. Robert DuPont, member the NDEWS Scientific Advisory Group and the first director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). “DOTS not only gives answers it also assuages a dangerous fear-driven panic and confusion about new and unknown drugs. A useful reality check.”
An overview of the DOTS methodology and the complete DOTS bulletins are available on the NDEWS website.
