FOCUS ON POLYDRUG USE, SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT AND DRUGS IN PRISON

2002 Annual report on EU drugs problem

EMBARGO 11H00 (BRUSSELS) 03 October 2002

Today's report has a special focus on polydrug use, successful drug treatment strategies and the ever-controversial topic of drugs in prison.

On polydrug use, it echoes growing EU concerns and calls for greater study of the 'rituals and social controls' involved. On successful treatment, it concludes that what's known to work should be expanded and refined. On drug use in prisons, the EMCDDA says it has fundamentally changed the reality of prison life over the past two decades.
