Head of focal point: Mr João Goulão
The Portuguese national focal point is located within the General-Directorate for Intervention on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies (SICAD). Attached to the Ministry of Health, SICAD’s mission is to promote a reduction in the use of psychoactive substances, the prevention of addictive behaviours and a reduction in dependencies.
SICAD is the EMCDDA’s national focal point and it is directly responsible for the implementation of the National Plan. It plans, implements and coordinates drug demand reduction interventions, and collects, analyses and disseminates information on drug use and its responses.
The Director General of SICAD is also the National Coordinator for Drugs, Drug Addiction and Alcohol-Related Problems.
