Hepatitis C and injecting drug use : impact, costs, and policy options by European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Infectious diseases, such as hepatitis A, B and C and HIV, are an important health consequence of drug addiction, especially in injecting drug users (IDUs). Hepatitis C, the most common infectious disease in IDUs, is the central focus of this monograph. Injecting drug use, through sharing injection equipment, is currently the major risk factor for hepatitis C. The great majority of new hepatitis C cases are related to injecting drug use and the prevalence and incidence of hepatitis C in IDUs are extremely high. This monograph pulls together state-of-the-art knowledge in treatment, natural history and prevention. It provides the first European data on epidemiological trends in injecting drug users, presents modelling results that give early indications to which interventions could be the most effective at the population level, as well as estimates of the future costs of healthcare, what part of these costs are avoidable, and the cost-effectiveness of existing interventions such as needle and syringe exchange and methadone treatment
Guidelines for the evaluation of drug prevention : a manual for programme-planners and evaluators by European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The EMCDDA first published the Guidelines for the evaluation of drug prevention in 1998 to respond to a need expressed by professionals and policymakers to have a tool and stimulus to evaluate prevention interventions in Europe. These guidelines aimed to facilitate and encourage project leaders to evaluate their own interventions and to design them accordingly. This second edition is an updated version of the original EMCDDA guidelines, which contains new methods, concepts and examples of currently available drug prevention interventions and which provides a framework for carrying out an evaluation. The content has also been updated with developments in online EMCDDA drug prevention and evaluation resources

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Researching and analysing the responses of the criminal-justice systems to drug offenders throughout Europe is one of the EMCDDA's priorities. This study is the result of a decision taken by the EMCDDA's Management Board in 1999 to set up a legal information system on drugs. This study, focusing on the gap between law and practice, aims to highlight the real outcomes for individuals arrested for using and selling drugs and committing property crimes. (EMCDDA website)

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policymakers and practitioners around the world acknowledge the importance of outreach work in the drug field, but the fact that it is a good idea does not mean that every project is of the same standard. Clients, policymakers and project staff need ways of assessing whether projects are fulfilling their aims and objectives. These guidelines aim to help outreach projects: to understand their aims and objectives; to understand and value their activity; to improve that activity; and to show themselves and others their worth

Prevention of substance abuse by Anneke Bühler( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this report is to assess the effectiveness of measures for the prevention of substance abuse drawing on high quality surveys including reviews and meta-analyses. Effectiveness, in this context, means impact in preventing, delaying or reducing children's and young people's consumption of tobacco and alcohol as well as cannabis and other illicit psychoactive substances. The study covers preventive measures that are both behavioral and environmental (i.e. based on consumption environment and context). It presents conclusions about the effectiveness of measures in a range of settings as well as substance-specific conclusions. The conclusions reported are rated according to the strength of the evidence on which they are based. Observations on gender-specific effectiveness, on negative consequences of addiction-prevention measures and on efficiency are also included. In addition, the theoretical background to effective measures is described and assessed.--Publisher's description

Report on the risk assessment of 4-MTA in the framework of the joint action on new synthetic drugs by European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An enlarged EMCDDA Scientific Committee met from 18–19 May 1997 in Lisbon to assess the risks of the synthetic drug 4-MTA (4-methylthioamphetamine) in the framework of the Joint action on new synthetic drugs. The Committee's tasks were to assess the health and social risks of the substance and the possible consequences of prohibition.This report concludes that 4-MTA should be placed under control in the EU Member States largely due to the high risks of overdose associated with the drug. These stem from the slow onset of the drug's effects – often misinterpreted by users as the result of a weak dose, leading to the consumption of more pills – and their long-lasting nature. Also highlighted in the report are the serious risks resulting from mixing the drug with alcohol, MDMA, amphetamines, ephedrine and certain foods.Further to the conclusions of the EMCDDA risk assessment, on 13 September 1999, the Council of the European Union adopted a unanimous decision defining the new synthetic drug 4-MTA (4-methylthioamphetamine) as a substance to be placed under control measures and criminal penalties in the EU Member States
Outreach work among drug users in Europe : concepts, practice, and terminology by European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outreach work among drug users in Europe is the culmination of a multi-country study commissioned by the EMCDDA in 1998 to assess the concepts, practice and terminology relating to outreach work among drug users in the EU Member States. Significant variations are observed in Europe in the political, social, theoretical and practical contexts in which outreach work is delivered to this group. This publication aims to facilitate communication between professionals in this area by establishing linguistic equivalents and makes a case for including outreach work in a European-wide information system. The volume makes a significant contribution to the assessment of outreach work in Europe. (EMCDDA website)
Reviewing current practice in drug-substitution treatment in the European Union by European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of an EMCDDA-commissioned study carried out in 1998 and 1999 into one of the most widely discussed drug-related topics in Europe today: substitution treatment. The study was prompted by the lively debate on the issue in the mid-1990s, when Switzerland launched its first heroin trial, France began buprenorphine treatment and methadone programmes expanded rapidly throughout Europe. These initiatives led to an increased focus on substitution treatment and to the trajectories it was to follow in the future. The volume opens with a historical overview of substitution treatment, the development of methadone maintenance and other substitution services and a section on monitoring and evaluation. It closes with a series of country profiles for each of the then 15 EU Member States, all containing an introduction to substitution treatment in the country concerned. (EMCDDA website)
