dc.description.abstract Hospitals across South Africa are inundated with patients suffering from conditions associated with substance abuse. It is inevitable that contact with health services be made through an emergency centre (EC) at some point. This study aims to assess the exposure and attitudes of emergency physicians to substance abuse and addiction in major South African academic ECs. A prospective survey based on the Substance Abuse Attitude Survey (SAAS) was conducted in a convenience sample of eighty five emergency physician registrars and junior consultants in Cape Town, Gauteng, Limpopo and KwaZulu Natal. Respondents were targeted during academic meetings and by post. en_ZA
