Diagnosis of the phenomenon of drug use in Reus
The diagnostic evaluation of the phenomenon of psychoactive substance use (legal and illegal) is a difficult task to validate, since it is a very complex phenomenon that is often made invisible by the social actors themselves (illegality and stigma). In order to approach this reality, on the one hand we have direct indicators (population and school consumption surveys, etc.) and on the other hand we have indirect indicators such as access data (treatment initiations, hospital emergencies, etc.) to specialized centers that can facilitate an approximation to the reality of the phenomenon.
To evaluate the structure of services at the local level and diagnose problems based on the response given, we will use validated international guidelines that will provide us with very useful checklists to guide interventions.
