The use of drugs of dependence in South Australia is regulated by the controlled substances legislation and monitored by SA Health’s Drugs of Dependence Unit (DDU). The DDU helps ensure South Australians continue to have access to appropriate treatment while minimising the potential harms associated with drug dependence, misuse, and diversion.
Drugs of dependence are prescription medicines that have a recognised therapeutic need but also a higher potential for misuse, abuse and dependence. The Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP) classifies poisons and medicines into different schedules (for example schedule 4 – Prescription Only Medicine and Schedule 8 – Controlled drug).
I have read and understand the following conditions of use regarding the Online Privileged Circular:

Obtained or attempted to obtain drugs by false pretences or other unlawful means, or
Obtained or attempted to obtain drugs for an unlawful purpose, for the purpose of preventing or restricting further supply of these drugs to those persons.
Any information disclosed to me may not represent the listed person’s complete picture of drug-seeking or unlawful behaviour.
There may be people who are obtaining drugs by false pretences or unlawful means who are not captured by the Circular.
It is a condition of this agreement that I must not disclose my password, or any information contained in the Online Privileged Circulars, to any other person except so far as is necessary to prevent or restrict further supplies of drugs
