Over the past two decades behavioural insights have grown in prominence both in academic circles and in public policy institutions. Both the behavioural scientific literature and the number of relevant policy reports have increased exponentially. This paper reviews insights from behavioural sciences that are relevant for drug policy, encompassing both interventions specific to the field of drug addiction and more general insights that also have direct relevance to the field. It is worth noting, however, that a full systematic review was beyond the scope of this paper.
