European Commission. (1994) Community action in the field of drug dependence. Proposal for a European Parliament and Council decision: adopting a programme of Community action on the prevention of drug dependence within the framework for action in the field of public health (1995- 2000). Luxembourg: Office for Official Publications of the European Communities.

Drug dependence is a multi-faceted problem, with links to major social scourges such as social exclusion and unemployment as well as crime. The wide range of initiatives adopted by the Council and the European Parliament has demonstrated the seriousness with which they regard this problem and their conviction that actions to tackle it are needed at the Community level.

The Community is now in a position to consolidate its achievements in the field of drug prevention and build on the work already carried out by proposing a forward-looking programme for drug dependence within the overall context of public health. This programme will aim to cover (1) the use of narcotics and psychotropic drugs, (2) the abuse of alcohol and pharmaceutical products, (3) the misuse of chemical substances or products (solvents etc.) for drug dependence purposes.
