I have attached an interesting journal article as a pdf file. Bam is a city 
in Iran were 35,000 people were killed during the earthquake.

The Impact of Bam Earthquake on Substance Users in the First 2 Weeks: A Rapid 
Assessment

Journal of Urban Health: Bulletin of the New York Academy of Medicine, Vol. 
82, No. 3:370-377.

Abstract (edited)

During the first 2 weeks after the earthquake, about half of drug-dependent 
interviewees
suffered from withdrawal symptoms. About half reported their problems to
health care providers and asked for morphine or other analgesics. Around one 
third
had used opium on the first day and two thirds in the course of the second 
day to the
end of the second week after the earthquake. Although smoking had been the 
most
common means of abuse before the earthquake, oral intake has become the most 
prevalent
route after the disaster. Almost all obtained their opium from inhabitants of 
other
cities as gifts.

Good reading.
