Het Vlaams actieplan inzake tabak, alcohol en drugs is opgemaakt om de gezondheidsschade door tabak, alcohol en drugs te verminderen. Dat kan alleen door het gebruik van die middelen op bevolkingsniveau te doen dalen. Op individueel niveau streven we ernaar dat:
• mensen niet beginnen met gebruik;
• het eerste gebruik zolang mogelijk wordt uitgesteld;
• mensen die al hebben gebruikt dat niet regelmatig gaan doen;
• mensen die al regelmatig gebruiken, stoppen met gebruiken;
• mensen die al gebruiken de schade bij zichzelf en hun omgeving zo veel mogelijk beperken.

The Flemish Action Plan on tobacco, alcohol and drugs aims to minimize the negative health impact of tobacco, alcohol and drugs on health. -At the individual level, the policy aims to: :
• ensure people do not start using;
• ensure first use is postponed as long as possible;
• target people who have already used but do not use regularly;
• target people who already regular users in order to stop use;
• target people who already use in order to limit the damage to themselves and their environment as much as possible.
