This report documents current volatile substance misuse (VSM) interventions in central, north and Far North Queensland. It examines qualitative and statistical data to determine evidence-based local responses to address VSM. The report draws on data from the project, Youth empowered towards independence (YETI) and documents a set of practice principles within the local context.

The findings and subsequent recommendations, which are presented in the report, are aimed at identifying the services, and collaborative processes that were found to more effectively address inhalant use within the community.
