Prevention and public health approaches to amphetamine-type stimulant use and related harm
MetadataShow full item record
As illustrated elsewhere in this book, diverse approaches have been adopted to prevent and respond to amphetamine-type stimulant (ATS) use and related harm. These have ranged from regulation of pharmaceutical ATS, law enforcement strategies that aim to have public health relevance through disruption of production and reduction of supply, to community education campaigns, and harm reduction and treatment programs for dependent consumers. This chapter examines the role of prevention and other public health approaches to illegal drug problems in general and specifically in relation to ATS use and related harm.
