This study sought to explore potential patterns of polysubstance use as an interplay between substance use, substance use setting, and a number of potentially distal outcomes.
Five distinct profiles were identified, that ranged from low, through moderate to high polysubstance use patterns with different prominent substances of use. Cannabis use was high across all profiles and did not differentiate between them well. Use of dissociatives and frequent polysubstance use across settings (except for using alone) were most strongly associated with negative substance-related outcomes (e.g. SUDs).
