By taking cues from users' self-regulation strategies, it is possible to design innovative operational models for drug services as well as drug policies, strengthening Harm Reduction as an alternative approach to the disease model.
A significant body of research on cocaine users recruited outside captive populations - that is, studies based on samples of users who have not been enrolled through drug addiction services - has been carried out in many European countries and outside Europe. These studies show a variety of patterns and trajectories of use other than "addictive" use.
This paper illustrates the aim of encouraging users' informal controls while reducing the harm caused by punitive laws and policies.
