An overview study: Assistance to drug users in European Union prisons (abridged version)


In line with EU priorities, the EMCDDA launched the study ‘Assistance to drug users in European Union prisons’ in December 1999. The aim of the study – commissioned from Dr Heino Stöver from the University of Oldenburg – was to provide an overview of the situation and the demand and harm reduction responses in a setting characterised as being enormously relevant to Member States’ efforts to reduce crime linked to drugs. This is an abridged version — the full version of the study may be found in our Document Library.
