Track Meth in New Zealand with our quarterly MethMap
Every quarter, we publish a MethMap distribution of positive meth tests MethSolutions takes across the country.
We publish the percentage of positive tests in each of the following main regions: Northland, Auckland, Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Hawkes Bay, Lower North Island and the South Island in our MethMap.
This gives us an indication of trends in meth contamination over time.
Our most recent data:
