The Unit  released two reports in 1999 based on findings from the 1998 National Drug Survey: Drugs in New Zealand National Survey, 1998; and
Drug Use in New Zealand Comparison Surveys, 1990 & 1998, which compares the results of regional surveys of drug use, carried out in 1990 and 1998.

A third report Te Ao Taru Kino Drug Use Among Maori 1998 was released by the Whariki Maori Health Research Group in conjunction with APHRU. 

The Alcohol & Public Health Research Unit has published several review papers on cannabis policy in New Zealand and also developed a project on schools' policies on cannabis use.

In the area of community action APHRU and Whariki developed a youth and drugs project (CAYAD) incorporating six community project sites around New Zealand.
