European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction. (1999) Evaluating the treatment of drug abuse in the European Union. EMCDDA Scientific Monograph Series; No. 3 Luxembourg: Office for Official Publications of the European Communities.

This monograph describes methods, instruments and indicators designed to enhance the evaluation of treatment programmes for drug users in the EU.

Through a dozen expert papers and recommendations, the publication explores the theory of drug treatment evaluation and how the principles of such evaluation can be applied in practice and made relevant to practitioners. In particular, the monograph demonstrates how evaluation can help policy-makers take informed and appropriate decisions on treatment and help professionals boost the quality, relevance and cost-effectiveness of treatment services.
