The Journal of Global Drug Policy and Practices Launches Vol.6 Issue 2 of TRENDS IN SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT, PART II
In this second part of a two-part exploration of the area of substance abuse treatment throughout the world, subject matter experts will examine specific problems and trends, as they relate to the treatment arena within the international community. Substance abuse, as a health, economic, and societal concern, is a serious global challenge. The subject of substance abuse is a complicated and controversial one, but few would question the assertion that the treatment of drug abuse must be considered when looking at the totality of this issue. The impact of drug abuse spreads from the individual to the community to the society; therefore it must be viewed in a context of how best to deal with its impact from all these perspectives. In this edition of the Journal, we will further focus on issues related to this topic.
The Journal of Global Drug Policy and Practice, a joint effort of the Institute on Global Drug Policy and the International Scientific and Medical Forum on Drug Abuse, is an international, open access, peer-reviewed, online journal with the goal of bridging the information gap on drug policy issues between the medical/scientific community, policymakers, and the concerned lay public.
Edited by Eric A. Voth, MD, FACP and David A. Gross, MD, DFAPA, our intended readership includes clinicians, clinical researchers, policymakers, prevention specialists, and the interested public.
