Description

Sinn und Zweck der Suchtpräventionstrategie ist es, an der Schnittstelle zwischen wissenschaftlichem Erkenntnisstand in den einschlägigen Disziplinen, medizinischer und psychosozialer Praxis sowie allen maßgeblichen Politik- und Verwaltungsbereichen die
Richtschnur für die Akteurinnen und Akteure vorzugeben. Es geht dabei nicht um
einen detaillierten Maßnahmenkatalog, sondern um die Definition eines gemeinsamen
gesellschaftlichen Grundverständnisses zum Thema Sucht, mit formulierten
Zielen und einem Orientierungsrahmen für die Entwicklung und Umsetzung von Maßnahmen auf verschiedenen Ebenen in den verschiedenen Verantwortungsbereichen.

Aim of this addiction prevention strategy is to provide the direction and general objectives for addiction prevention in Austria including all stakeholders that should be involved (academia, medicine, psychosocial practice, politics and administration). It is not about defining concrete measures but to provide a shared societal understanding of addiction including goals and a guiding framework for the development of specific measure on different levels in different areas of responsibility.
