Prepared for the World Summit for Social Development, which was held at Copenhagen in March 1995, the paper that follows analyses social aspects of many of the principal issues involved in drug abuse and drug control that are of concern to organizations of the United Nations system and other intergovernmental organizations. The paper was originally commissioned by the United Nations International Drug Control Programme (UNDCP) and drafted by an independent consultant, Jean Paul Smith, former consulting Psychologist and Senior Policy Analyst at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Washington. It was subsequently reviewed and revised by a United Nations inter-agency group. The names of the organizations that provided information for this paper appear below.
The purpose of the paper is twofold: first, to examine the social and economic impact of drug abuse from a broad international perspective. Secondly, based on that analysis, to suggest how problems of drug abuse prevention and control can be addressed in a constructive, coordinated manner. The paper concerns primarily narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances but also includes, where appropriate, information on problems related to the abuse of other addictive substances such as alcohol and tobacco.
