RAR manual Substance use and addiction

Richard Braam Hans Verbraeck Franz Trautmann In recent years alternatives have been sought for traditional scientific research methods, which have proven expensive and time-consuming in terms of assessing and responding to public health problems. This has especially been the case in the field of illicit substance use health risks, where attempts were made to develop new assessment and response models. Financial resources necessary for traditional research are often hard to find. Many public health problems require a quicker response than traditional scientific research generally allows. This has led to the development of so-called Rapid Assessment and Response (RAR) approaches. CVO and the Trimbos Institute refined RAR and built a data management tool to make analysing and reporting easier and transparent to enable people who are not scientifically trained, to use RAR. This resulted in a manual to map problematic substance use quickly and accurately and generate priorities and ideas for interventions.

The main objective of this project is the identification of the attitudes and knowledge of prisoners and prison officers regarding narcotic substances; mapping drug use problems for planning long-term activities in the field of drug use and HIV prevention in prisons, including suggestions for the development of appropriate health promotion and risk reduction programmes. The target group for this project are adult male prisoners serving their sentences in camp type prison and having problems and/or running health risks because of drug use and drug related risk behaviour. To start the assessment one prison was selected as target setting: Marijampole Correction House.
