Cyprus Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction

The Cyprus Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (CMCDDA) operates within the framework of the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA). The Cyprus focal point is a member of the Reitox network, which currently includes each of the 27 EU Member States plus Croatia, Turkey, Norway and the European Commission.

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) was established in 1993 and is based in Lisbon. The EMCDDA exists to provide the EU and its Member States with a factual overview of European drug problems and a solid evidence base to support the drugs debate. It currently offers policymakers the data they need for drawing up informed drug laws and strategies. It also helps professionals and practitioners working in the field pinpoint best practice and new areas of research. For more information about the EMCDDA please follow the link [http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/about]

The National Focal Point was established in 2003 and operates within the organizational framework of the Cyprus Anti-drugs Council.

Trends related to Treatment Demand 2004-2011

The trends related to treatment demand are available through various presentations that were prepared for the annual expert meetings of the EMCDDA, or for the national network meetings. These presentations include information including a synopsis of trends over the years as regards to the number of persons seeking treatment for substance misuse, their basic characteristics and patterns of use. The presentations are available here (hyperlink), and you can also access the research results here.

Epidemiological Indicators

A basic principle for the development of an effective policy and the adoption of actions is having an understanding of the nature and extend of the drug problem. The EMCDDA aiming to ensure improved comparability, objectivity and reliability of data has established common criteria key epidemiological indicators and other indicators, with a view to greater uniformity of the measurement methods used by the Member States. In Cyprus, the National Focal Point of the EMCDDA, the Cyprus Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, operates within the framework of the Cyprus Anti-drugs Council.
