Public programme evaluation studies

Since 1999, the OFDT has been evaluating drug-related public policy. The studies conducted are of themes that are of particular interest for current public policy strategies or "key" measures or programmes, or of areas that present an approach to assessing the plans of the French government.

Until now, the work performed has been on a variety of subjects, such as: treatment; prisoner treatment; counselling clinics for young users (CJC); opioid substitution treatments (OST); Harm Reduction (HR); prevention; law enforcement and the penal response; governmental policy evaluation.
