Drug taking in the Romany communities of Prešov region
Užívanie drog v rómskych komunitách Prešovského kraja
In 2007 Regional Center for Romany Question realized research in Prešov. This research was dedicated to question of drug taking in Prešov region and was realized on the sample of 70 Romany communities. This research allowed to outline condition of drug taking (mainly illegal) in these communities and simultaneously created basic informative database for future identical or similar research. The researchers examined applicable methods and techniques which can be used. They didn’t want to do quantitative research of users of particular hard drugs and „to count“drug taking people. The research showed that situation of the question of drug taking in Romany communities is much better as was expected. So called hard drugs didn’t occur in these communities (except city of Prešov), jolt occurs in larger extent just in some communities (total of 7) and in others didn’t occur or occurred in limited numbers or just shortly.
