The bridging role of PG in the scope of European drug cooperation enables policymakers and experts of both the European Union and non-EU member states to participate in open, non-political debate, exchange practical and scientific experience and promote standards of good practice. Free, open forum for debate serves to highlight new developments and identify new challenges and needs. In order to fulfil its mission PG has established six expert committees called Platforms. One of the Platforms is dedicated to treatment problems.
This publication prepared by a group of experts is addressed to a wide range of recipients both policymakers and persons directly involved in drug treatment. The platform undertook to tackle the issue of care for minors due to the increasing scale of the phenomenon as well as the health and social consequences. It has been considered a common problem for all European countries. Epidemiological data provide a basis for the estimation of the scale and range of the phenomenon. Following trends and patterns of consumption makes it possible to assess treatment needs and in consequence planning remedial actions at different management levels ranging from local through regional and national to international. Planning and implementing successful care for drug-endangered individuals requires identifying the drug problem among other social problems and searching for remedial actions based on recognizing the broadly understood problem of use of psychoactive substances such as tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical drugs. Another element of planning successful treatment actions is the evaluation of factors helping or preventing young people from using addictive substances. Referring, in treatment programmes, to both risk and protective factors related to biological, psychological and social and environmental aspects allows for a better diagnosis and planning therapy, which must always include individual conditions and capabilities of individuals benefiting from outreach services.
Adopting advanced screening and assessment techniques allows for supporting the treatment process with a severity analysis of drug problem. It provides diagnoses adequate to the needs and facilitates planning therapeutic process based on collected information. Screening techniques related to consumption of psychoactive substances should be used not only in the case of contact of young people with the drug outreach services but also in other life situations that may be linked to drug use such as entering psychiatric treatment system or contacts with juvenile justice system. Treatment and planning require applying approaches including chronic and complex nature of addictions. Planning and implementing treatment should also include biophysical, cognitive, emotional, moral and social conditions and aspects of drug use. (Extract of the publication)
