Description

The current Swedish drug strategy, A Cohesive Strategy for Alcohol, Narcotic Drugs, Doping and Tobacco (ANDT) Policy, was adopted on 18 April 2011. Covering the period 2011–15, the strategy has the same overall objective as its predecessors, that is, to have a society free from narcotics. In addition to the strategy’s overall objective — which is a society free from narcotics and doping, decreased medical and social harm from alcohol and a decrease in use of tobacco — there are seven equally important long-term objectives:

1. Curtailing the supply of illegal drugs, doping substances, alcohol and tobacco.

2. Protecting children against the harmful effects of alcohol, narcotic drugs, doping and tobacco.

3. Gradually reducing the number of children and young people who initiate the use of tobacco, illicit drugs or doping substances or begin drinking alcohol early.

4. Gradually reducing the number of people who become involved in harmful use, abuse or dependence on alcohol, illicit drugs, doping substances or tobacco.

5. Improving access to good-quality care and support for people with substance abuse or addiction.

6. Reducing the number of people who die or suffer injuries or damage to their health as a result of their own or others’ use of alcohol, illicit drugs, doping substances or tobacco.

7. Promoting a public health based, restrictive approach to ANDT in the European Union and internationally.
