On request of the Luxembourg Ministry of Health, the Trimbos Institute has conducted an evaluation of the National Drug Action Plan of Luxembourg (2005-2009).

This evaluation report starts with a summary, followed by chapter 2 with a short description of the objectives, structure and priorities of the Strategy and the Action Plan. Based on this we have identified the key questions and guiding principles for the evaluation.

The third chapter describes the project methodology and activities.

In chapter 4 a balance sheet of the actions and progress is presented, based on a survey (questionnaires) among stakeholders. Chapter 5 describes the results of a SWOT analysis based on interviews with stakeholders, while chapter 6 follows with a discussion on findings.

Finally, recommendations are made in chapter 7.

Identification of the attitudes and knowledge of prisoners and prison officers regarding narcotic substances; mapping drug use problems for the long-term planning of activities in the field of drug use prevention in prisons, including suggestions for the development of appropriate rehabilitation programmes.
