The authors are part of the Inhalants Working Group, an ad hoc multi-national group of drug abuse researchers formed following the 2005 international meeting, Inhalant Abuse Among Children and Adolescents, whose 55 invited participants from 10 nations recommended that an international workgroup of pharmacologists and epidemiologists be created to classify substances and develop questions for use in screening instruments and surveys. That meeting was co-sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) International Program and the John E. Fogarty International Center (FIC) from the United States; the Canadian Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA) and the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health (IAPH) at the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR); and the Mexican Consejo Nacional Contra las Addicciones (CONADIC). The authors have worked together through the NIDA International Virtual Collaboratory to engage the international drug abuse research community to further investigate inhalant use. In addition to this paper, the group has presented workshops at the 2007 and 2008 NIDA International Forums and is working with other organizations to gather international data on inhalant abuse.
