European drug prevention quality standards
A manual for prevention professionals
This publication is the result of a two-year project to publish European standards in drug prevention, co-funded by the European Commission (EC) (60 %) and the respective project partner organisations (40 %). The standards were developed by the Prevention Standards Partnership, a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral collaboration of seven organisations across Europe, led by Dr Harry Sumnall and Angelina Brotherhood of the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), UK, who are also the authors of this publication. European Union (EU) policy, such as the EU drugs... action plans for 2005-08 and 2009-12, has expressed an intention to develop and implement best practice in drug prevention, but so far has not been able to provide o reference framework on how to do this. Guidance on drug prevention interventions is available in some Member States of the EU, but it varies in terms of its content, methodological rigour, and its applicability to the wider European context. In response to this situation, this project aimed to provide a commonly agreed reference framework that could help improve the state of drug prevention in the EU.
