The report is prepared annually by the National Focal Point on Drugs and Drug Addictions (NFP) with the support and adoption by the NDC, a body within the Council of Ministers that determines and coordinates national policy in the field of drugs and precursors.

The implementation of this report was supported by more than 120 partners – ministries, departments, organisations, centres and experts. Dozens of studies initiated and carried out under the direction of the NFP were used for its preparation.

The report presents data mainly for 2022 and reviews the situation and trends related to drugs and drug addictions in Bulgaria, tracking the development of a wide range of indicators related to drug use, demand and supply, public health issues, drug policy and responses to drug use and drug addictions.

A special chapter is devoted to the use of cigarettes and other nicotine products.
