The items deal with demographic and personal data, problems in the neighborhood, drug knowledge, drug use in the neighborhood, attitudes toward drug use; availability of drugs, agencies dealing with drugs, drug education, personal knowledge of drug users, and reasons for drug use. The instrument is untimed and individually administered as a structured interview. The person giving the questionnaire needs training and experience in interview and survey techniques.
