Facts and stats

  • The latest estimates for the problem drug user (PDU) population were calculated using the multiplier method, with data from users of harm reduction programmes aged 15–64.
  • Cocaine is rarely used in Slovakia, and so the definition is in effect limited to injecting drug users (IDUs) and regular users of opioids and/or pervitin (methamphetamine powder).
  • In 2008 it was estimated that around 10 600 people (range: 8 200–33 500) were problem drug users, or 2.7, 2.1–8.5 per 1 000 inhabitants aged 15–64.
  • For the same year, there were estimated to be 4 000–9 800 opioid users (approximately 46 % of the estimated population of PDUs) and 2 500–9 900 pervitin users.
  • After 1989 Slovakia gradually became a transit point on the routes through which several drugs are illegally transported.
