Treating Drug Addicts Economically Sound

Published tisdag 26 februari 2008 kl 12.22

A new Swedish study suggests that offering care to drug addicts can save society money. 

Figure crunching shows that Stockholm’s methadone program consisting of 600 participants costs US$10 million annually.  The statistics calculated on behalf of the Swedish National Drug Policy Coordinator suggests that without treatment, that cost would be over US$160 million each year.

The study was commissioned by the government’s former coordinator on narcotic questions, Björn Fries.
