Excerpt
INTRODUCTION This report is an attempt to provide an updated description of Merent methods used around the world to treat health problems associated with substance use. Its structure was developed at two consultation meetings held in 1991 (in Moscow, Russia, and in St Petersinsel, Switzerland) organized by the WHO Programme on Substance Abuse and supported financially by UNDCP. All the chapters reflect the points of view of their authors and do not represent official WHO policies or recommendations. Whilst every attempt has been made to be as comprehensive as possible, it is obvious that the choice of where to put emphasis is somewhat arbitrary. The chapters have been edited only so as to ensure reasonable consistency of terminology. It is obvious that some chapters and sections thereof or particular techniques or interventions will have greater applicability to certain areas of the world, population groups or culture. Because of lack of space, many issues could not be discussed in as much depth as they merit. For example, in the chapter on pharmacological treatments, the description of the use of benzodiazepines in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal. Other examples include rather brief discussions of the trend in some countries to merge alcohol and drug dependence treatment services and of the problem of providing suitable treatment for those suffering psychiatric comorbidity. There are probably many more such examples, but it is hoped that they will not detract from the main thrust of the report, which is to describe in broad terms the range of treatment approaches currently being practised around the world.
