Supplementary notes

National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths (NPSAD) drug-related deaths are those deaths reported voluntarily to the NPSAD by coroners. Responses were voluntarily submitted from a total of 78 out of 99 coroners' jurisdictions in England, giving a total coverage rate of 78.8%.
An NPSAD case is defined as a death where any of the following criteria are met at a completed inquest, fatal accident inquiry or similar investigation:
- One or more psychoactive substance directly implicated in death;
- History of dependence or abuse of psychoactive drugs;
- Presence of Controlled Drugs at post mortem; or
- Cases with deaths directly due to drugs but with no inquest.
The deaths detailed here are those which involved GHB/GBL drugs as an implicated substance. There may also have been other implicated substances in any of these cases.
