The present project is targeting the issue of access to treatment for people with alcohol- and drug-related problems. Problems of substance-related disorders, when not properly dealt with, produce dramatic costs to all societies in terms of lost productivity, transmission of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and B, family and social disorder, crime, excessive utilization of health care and, of course, decrease quality of life of the individual and of the entire EU community. The general objectives of the project are to decrease the above mentioned costs for the society and for the individual caused by delaying of or even preventing people with alcohol- and drug-related problems from treatment entry. It is the improvement of access to treatment for people with alcohol- and drug-related problems, as also suggested by research evidence, which has the potential to contribute to the achievement of strategic objectives such as decreasing the incidence of HIV, hepatitis C and B and other infectious diseases, reducing the prevalence of substance use and substance demand, reducing the incidence of substance use related health damage, reducing drug related crime, reducing excessive utilization of health care, increasing productivity and decreasing substance use related absenteeism and unemployment, increasing the level of security for the society, reducing the burden of distress for the family caused by substance use problems, reducing disease, injury, disability and premature death caused by substance use, reducing highrisk behaviours, including unsafe sex, especially among youth.
