Head of focal point: Ms Maud PoussetSince 1996, the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (Observatoire Français des Drogues et des Toxicomanies, OFDT) has been entrusted as an independent body with the coordination of all drug monitoring activities in France, and has acted as the national focal point. In addition, the OFDT is responsible for the evaluation of drug policies in France. Since 1999, its areas of activity have included licit drugs (i.e. alcohol, tobacco, medicines) in addition to illicit drugs. The OFDT is funded by the Mission Interministérielle de Lutte Contre la Drogue et la Toxicomanie (MILDT), an interdepartmental body composed of representatives of different ministries, which is responsible for the overall coordination of activities against drugs and drug addiction in France.

Each treatment profile provides information on the national context, treatment registries and monitoring systems, treatment demand, availability of treatment services as well as references and resources.
Each overview describes: the national context; references and resources; key responses for preventing and reducing drug-related infectious diseases and; drug-related deaths and drug-related harms in recreational settings.
These data sheets on drug-related public expenditure cover 30 countries and examine how much countries spend on drug-related activities, whether there are specific budgets allocated to drug policy documents, and how drug-related expenditure has evolved over time.
