Proposal to reform drug abuse rehabilitation

Published onsdag 27 april 2011 kl 10.24
Gerhard Larsson

A new study into rehabilitation for drug addicts here is proposing that responsibility for treatment be moved from the municipalities to county councils.

Gerhard Larsson, who conducted the study, writes in Wednesday’s edition of the newspaper Dagens Nyheter that major reforms are required in the current legislation, which is 30 years old.

Most healthcare in Sweden is handled at the county level, and Larsson says nine out of ten addicts would prefer to be treated within the healthcare system, rather than by local social services.

But several key institutions and organisations reject the proposal, among them the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, two unions, and an organization working with those involved in drug abuse.
