Measuring, understanding and responding to drug problems in Europe



Expert meeting: 23-27 September 2013, Lisbon

EMCDDA week “Measuring, understanding and responding to drug problems in Europe”

The first EMCDDA week on ‘Measuring, understanding and responding to drug problems in Europe’ from 23-27 September 2013 gathered around 100 experts from across the European Union as well as the Russian Federation, South Africa, the United States and countries of the Western Balkans. The week brought together under the same ‘roof’ experts from diverse areas of work to inspire cross-disciplinary analyses of the drugs problem and responses to it and included policy and intervention components.

This week has brought together EMCDDA’s technical work in a number of different fields, namely:

  • measuring drug problems through the Problem Drug Use indicator (now focusing on “High risk drug use”),
  • understanding drug problems and treatment uptake through the Treatment Demand indicator,
  • and monitoring of Health and Social Responses to drug problems.
