The Best practice portal is designed to help you find practical and reliable information on what works (and what doesn’t) in the areas of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and social reintegration. It will help you identify tried and tested interventions quickly, allocate resources to what's effective, and improve interventions applying tools, standards and guidelines.
Guidelines and standards are popular instruments to promote quality and implement evidence-based recommendations. The translation of evidence-based recommendations into practice is the so called “implementation” process. In some cases it is sufficient to adopt the guidelines at service level; in other cases an adaptation to the local context is needed.
Here you can download brochures, posters and leaflets for the prevention of drug use and treatment, care and rehabilitation programmes
